How to Help After a Disaster

How to Help After a Disaster

Thank you to all of the generous individuals who donated their time, money, and supplies to people affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.

If you still want to help, whether through financial donation or personal volunteerism, make sure you do so responsibly.

  • Cash is the most efficient method of donating.Financial contributions to recognized disaster relief organizations are the fastest, most flexible, and most effective method of donating. Organizations on the ground know what items and quantities are needed. They often buy in bulk with discounts and, if possible, purchase through area businesses, which supports economic recovery. To make a cash donation directly to the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, visit www.unitedforpuertorico.com.You may also make financial donations to a National VOAD member organization to help voluntary or charitable organizations continue to provide services to Hurricane Maria survivors.
  • Confirm donations needed. Critical needs change rapidly confirm needed items BEFORE collecting; pack and label carefully; confirm delivery locations; arrange transportation. Unsolicited goods NOT needed burden local organizations ability to meet survivors confirmed needs, drawing away valuable volunteer labor, transportation, and warehouse space.
  • Connect to volunteer. Trusted organizations operating in the affected area know where volunteers are needed, and can ensure appropriate volunteer safety, training, and housing.
  • Donate through a trusted organization.Find trusted national and state level agencies to donate or volunteer from the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster. Do not self-deploy.
  • The Federal Emergency Management Agency is currently seeking talented and hard-working people to help support the response and recovery.

If you need help in determining where and how to give, theNational Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster website has a list ofmajor non-profits active in disaster work. For more information, visit www.fema.gov/volunteer-donate-responsibly and Three Ways to Help After Hurricane Maria.
