DES MOINES, Iowa — Despite his loss in Iowa at the caucuses, Donald Trump gave back to Iowa’s largest homeless shelter.

The Des Moines Register reports that the Donald Trump Foundation donated $100,000 to the Central Iowa Shelter and Services. The donation is part of the money raised during his Jan. 28 rally for veterans.

Melissa O’Neil, CEO of the shelter, told the Register that national media outlets have been calling the shelter, inquiring about what groups benefited from the rally.

O’Neil said she contacted Trump’s campaign but didn’t hear back. Last week, the check showed up in their mailbox.

The donation will be used for general operations around the shelter.

Central Iowa Shelter and Services is one of three Iowa organizations that received money from Trump’s rally, according to the campaign.
