Volunteer with the Red Cross
The American Red Cross is always in need of volunteers, especially in times of major disaster relief. You can visit their website to learn more about how you can offer support for either Hurricane Harvey or Hurricane Irma relief. According to the website, 90% of the Red Cross workforce consists of volunteers. The support of dedicated volunteers is essential for recovery and rebuilding- if you’re even considering volunteering, it’s worth visiting their website today to learn more about how you can help.
Make a monetary donation
If you don’t live near a disaster site and don’t have the means to contribute your time and labor to relief efforts, you can still make a substantial contribution with a monetary donation, no matter how large or small. You can make a donation through the Red Cross or through another nonprofit supporting hurricane relief, such as Americares, Global Giving, and animal welfare organizations such as the ASPCA.
Impact Philanthropy is a complex topic, and others found these selections from the Impact Giving archive from Giving Compass to be good resources.
