How to Help After Natural Disasters

Are you interested in helping the victims of recent natural disasters, such as Hurricane Harvey or Hurricane Irma? Please consider sending money, instead of items. According to a recent report from CBS news, large amounts of items such as clothing and shoes can do more harm than good. With money, relief organizations are able to buy appropriate, local supplies at the correct time. Otherwise, donated items may sit unused since relief workers typically do not have time to sort and clean donated items right away.
Please consider donating to the Red Cross at https://www.redcross.org/donate/donation or another reputable organization.
