When Sending a Donation to a Disaster,
Remember To Donate Responsibly
It's true for any disaster. Cash donations are always the most effective. A cash donation reduces the labor and expense of sorting, packing, transporting and distributing donated goods. Relief agencies can use cash to meet survivors’ specific needs more quickly while also supporting local economic recovery.
Sacramento Region VOAD strongly encourages donors to carefully research charitable organizations prior to donating to ensure that their donated funds will have the desired result.
