Excerpt from article by NPR’s Pam Fessler:
“… Bob Ottenhoff, president and CEO of the Center for Disaster Philanthropy, has some words of caution for those who want to help.  "This is not the time to be donating products or even services," he says. "That's frequently the urge, and most often that is the wrong thing to do. ...With the floods blocking off streets, when warehouses are not available, there's no place for these products — there's no place to store anything, there's no place to distribute anything. And that's going to be the case for some time."

Instead, he says, people should give money to groups they trust, and that have the ability to provide aid where it's needed most.”

If there is ever a time of need to help our neighbors, that time is now.
