To help those recovering from Hurricane Irma
Making a monetary donation to a trusted, recognized relief organization is the most effective way to help those in need. Money provides organizations the flexibility to address more urgent and specialized needs, and allows resources to be funneled back into the local economy.
Please DO NOT self-deploy as a volunteer and DO NOT begin collecting or distributing unsoliticited donations until you've been in contact with an official relief organization.
