The Korean American community’s fundraising effort to help Korean businesses that suffered damages from the Baltimore riots last month has amassed more than $100,000.

The effort, led by an emergency committee for the cause and the Korea Times, started collecting funds on May 1.

Local churches, businesses, organizations and individuals gathered to help the more-than-40 Korean American businesses that were devastated by rioters and looters.

In the Baltimore riots that followed the funeral of Freddie Gray, several businesses went up in fire. At others, business owners were injured.

The committee said it would start taking applications requesting financial assistance Tuesday.
