Give Sensibly: Give Cash!
The National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NOVAD) recommends the following: CASH: Cash offers voluntary agencies the most flexibility in obtaining the most-needed resources. Many organizations specialize in providing relief in disaster areas, yet they face significant financial barriers to getting their staff, equipment, and supplies into impacted areas.Your donation helps put experienced disaster responders on the ground and gives them the tools they need to help survivors recover.
Please do not send or bring unsolicited donations! In the early stages of the response phase, most organizations are unable to accommodate any material goods. Unsolicited donations create a challenge of storage and sorting when focus is needed on response and recovery.
