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.
