The Trump Inaugural Committee plans to donate $3 million in surplus funds to victims of the latest hurricanes, The New York Times reports.
Trump’s inauguration committee, which raised a record $106 million from private donors for the 2017 inauguration of President Donald Trump, will donate funds left over to several charitable groups, the chairman of the committee said.
“The surplus of these privately donated funds will be put to great substantive use for relief victims throughout the heartbreaking regions of America impacted by the recent catastrophic disasters,” chairman Thomas Barrack said in an email.
The funds will go to the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army and Samaritan’s Purse, and all three are providing relief to areas in Texas, Florida and the Caribbean devastated by recent hurricanes.
