Lottery agency donates nearly $2 million for storm

The agency that operates the lotteries has turned over one billion colons to the national emergency commission to help persons who suffered damage from flooding and slides caused by Tropical Storm Tomas in the first few days of November.

The amount is about $1,975,000.

The lottery operator, the Junta de Protección Social, routinely makes donations to the emergency commission and many other agencies and organization. This donation was earmarked specifically for flood victims.
