Where to Donate (Hurricane Irma)


Here are links to organizations we have heard of that are providing support in the way of humanitarian assistance to those in need on the islands so drastically affected by Hurricane Irma. Please do a little research and make sure you feel comfortable – wherever you donate. You want your donation money to get to the people who REALLY need it! We are not including “Go Fund Me” accounts at this time as we have no way of checking their validity, although I’m sure there are some that are very honorable.

Apparently what is needed right now are the basics, food, clothing, personal hygiene items, generators, communication systems, housing, transportation, medical, etc. Please contact us to let us know of other reputable organizations that we should add to the list.

As time goes on, we’ll add links to any organizations that might assist in rebuilding. Right now it’s essential to help with what they need to get through the next few weeks and months. Thank you!
