"You know, there are a lot of people who are without food, without lodging. I don't think it's right for me to keep it," he said. He said he plans to try to return the check to the FEMA center in Harvey Cedars.

From treasurydirect.gov:

You can write a check payable to the Bureau of the Public Debt, and in the memo section, notate that it's a Gift to reduce the Debt Held by the Public. Mail your check to:

Attn Dept G
Bureau of the Public Debt
P. O. Box 2188
Parkersburg, WV 26106-2188


there you go, feel free to send it back.

Then: FEMA under fire for slow disaster assistance payments bureaucratic incompetence. Now: FEMA under fire for fast disaster assistance payments additional but different bureaucratic incompetence

abhorrent1: They were sent a check for $2,820 in rental assistance money. Raymond Saunderson, 77, said the money should go to those who truly need it.

So cash it and hand out the money to someone who needs it or send it back to FEMA. **crickets** Yeah, that's what I thought.


Did you read what came two sentences after that?
