Donating is one way to help in times of dire need, but not all donations can be utilized well. Cash donations are most preferred and highly recommended because it reduces the labor and expense of sorting, packing, transporting and distributing donated goods while supporting local economic recovery. We also strongly encourage donors to carefully research charitable organizations prior to donating to make sure their donated funds will be utilized well.
