Starting to see who the real Trump is now, Infowhores?
Meals on Wheels reported a surge in donations and volunteer signups following the release of President Trump's proposed budget, which would cut the program.
“We received 50 times the normal amount of donations yesterday,” Jenny Bertolette, vice president of communications at Meals on Wheels, told Yahoo News Friday. “Local programs fundraise individually and we can assume that there was likely a groundswell of local support, as well."
Bertolette said the group also "saw an almost 500 percent jump in volunteer sign-ups through our AmericaLetsDoLunch.org Ad Council website."
Trump’s proposed budget blueprint eliminates funding for Meals on Wheels, a program that provides meals for the poor, elderly and veterans.
