Connecticut Powerball Winners Donate To Charity

As promised, the three Powerball winners from Connecticut donated money to charity. The winners put up a trust fund called the Putnam Avenue Family Trust and through this donated $1 million to five charities which help veterans. The winners work as fund managers and the trust aims to become "a national model for others who have been equally fortunate in winning sweepstakes and now seek to use those dollars to touch the lives of others."

The Bob Woodruff Foundation, Building Homes for Heroes, Services for the Under Served (S.U.S.), Operation First Response and the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund each received $200,000. These organizations were chosen by the trust on the basis of their ongoing work and their track record working with veterans.
