Cash is Best
- Making a financial contribution to a volunteer agency involved in disaster relief is the best way of helping people in need after a disaster.
- Please watch this video below for guidance on how to donate responsibly:
The USAID Center for International Disaster Information partnered with the Ad Council to spread the word about donating cash, instead of material items, after a disaster. For more information, visit www.cidi.org.
Coordinate *Before* You Donate
- Never drop off in-kind (stuff) donations without coordinating your donation with a recipient agency first; only donate in-kind donations if solicited. For more information about how to donate, visit donateNYC.
