Donate Resources

 

Donate Clothing & Goods

It is our understanding that most outlets are currently overwhelmed with clothing and dry good donations and are in need of volunteers and financial donations now. 

“It happens in every disaster: People want to help, but they often donate things that turn out to be more of a burden.”
