Not a dime will be spent on any other purpose, we and our allies intend to make sure that our communities are at the forefront of the recovery process, and that they get the resources they need to rebuild their lives.

Our expenditures will be dictated by the needs of our communities, and we anticipate those needs will range from personal hygiene items to legal aid and advocacy.
