Hurricane Dorian

Everyone wants to help the victims of Hurricane Michael but we need to make sure our help is effective.

There are scammers who will profit off this disaster.  Before sending a contribution, do some research.  Be sure you give to a legitimate organization by visiting Charity Navigator. Be wary of brand-new charities; even if legitimate, they may not have the capabilities or resources to aid the victims.  Avoid unsolicited phone and email requests.  Do not send cash.  Use a credit card or personal check so you can track your donation.

The Florida Disaster Fund is accepting donations via their website, text or mailing a check:

  1. DIRECT MONETARY DONATION: At this early stage in the response and recovery phases, monetary donations are best. Donations can be made through church and community organizations.
  2. INDIVIDUAL GOODS DONATION: While all donations are appreciated, Monetary donations are best.
  3. CORPORATE GOODS DONATION: Same as the Individual Donation.  Monetary donations are best.
  4. VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME: The need for volunteers is inevitable. If you’d like to volunteer, contact your location church or organization for information regarding how you can help.
