White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed to The Hill that the president cut checks to 12 organizations helping the the Gulf region recover from the monster storm, which devastated swaths of southeast Texas and Louisiana last month.

The Hill confirmed with multiple groups that they received the funds this week.

Sanders announced late last month that the president would give $1 million of his personal funds to hurricane disaster relief. Following suggestions from the public and the White House press corps, on September 6 Huckabee Sanders announced 12 organizations that would receive funds.
