NEW YORK (FOX 5 NEWS) - President of the non-profit Veterans-In-Command Larry Robertson picked up his checks totaling $150,000 from Donald Trump at Trump Towers in Manhattan on Tuesday. This five-year-old Jamaica, Queens-based charity finds homes and shelters for homeless veterans.
The financially struggling nonprofit first asked Trump for help about a year ago before the presumptive Republican nominee even announced his bid for the White House. They didn't hear back until February when Trump held a fundraiser for veterans instead of attending a Republican debate.
Trump has been under fire from critics demanding to know what charities were going to get the almost $6 million Trump said that he raised. On Tuesday, Trump lashed out at the media for doubting his intentions.
The Veterans-In-Command president hopes Trump one day will pay them a visit in Queens.
