In disasters that cause severe damage, communities might need items or volunteers to assist in rebuilding, but sometimes not right away.
Please refrain from sending supplies and clothes or self-deploying to the affected area until a request is made.
Monetary donations in the early stages of a disaster give affected communities more agency and flexibility, and boosts the local economy.
Contributing to Episcopal Relief & Development makes helping in times of disaster easy – we work with impacted communities to assess what’s needed and when.
While the news is focused on a major event, always remember that disasters can happen anywhere at any time.
