CLEVELAND (AP) — More than $480,000 has been donated to help three Cleveland women who say they were kidnapped and held captive in a home for about a decade.
Organizers say the money will go to trust funds for Gina DeJesus, Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Berry's 6-year-old daughter, who was found with the women last week. Since then, donations have poured in from around the U.S. and several other countries for the Cleveland Courage Funds set up through the Cleveland Foundation and Key Bank.
An attorney speaking on the women's behalf says the donations can help cover counseling, medical care and other immediate needs. Attorney Jim Wooley says the women are grateful to their generous donors and to city council members who started the funds.
