HURRICANE LAURA

Give Sensibly: Cash is the most useful donations

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 charities 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.
