Victims need to know we care. And there are a number of ways to do that. Look for lists of requested items that may appear in the media. By following specified guidelines, timely donations will arrive at the scene of a disaster in an orderly way and will help rather than hinder the recovery and rebuilding process. Find out the needs of disaster victims and respond properly. Often, local disaster relief officials will determine the needs of their community. They will then provide the media and various disaster relief organizations with a needs list.
Everybody can lend a hand!»
