The most efficient way to get aid to people and communities in need is through cash donations. The Agency of Commerce and Community Development maintains a list of groups actively engaged in recovery support.
Small donations of food, clothing and household items are best handled at the local level. Food shelves, community centers and other local charities have the best information about local needs. The Front Porch Forum is also an excellent way to make people aware of available items. Please understand that the resources required to process and distribute these kinds of donations often makes it difficult to accept them.
If you need more help matching a potential donation with a recipient, you can email information and attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 888-428-1334.
Be sure to include your name, complete contact information and a description of what you wish to donate.
Businesses not currently under contract with the State can also leave their information for consideration.
