They need our help!

Our neighbors in the Bahamas bore the brunt of hurricane Dorian, suffering severe damage and loss of life.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel has put together a comprehensive list of ways to help and donate needed supplies. You can see the entire list here.

They’ve also gathered some useful tips on how to donate wisely. Here’s just a few, from the Sun-Sentinel:

  • Never give credit card numbers, gift card account numbers or bank account information to a caller on the phone or in response to an unsolicited email;
  • Before donating over the phone or online, take steps to verify the charity or fundraising campaign;
  • Avoid solicitors that use high-pressure tactics;
  • Watch for charities with similar-sounding names — if you have questions, look up the charity on CharityNavigator.org before giving.
