Persons interested in helping Hurricane Irma disaster response in St. John can best support the relief effort by making a cash donation instead of sending donated goods and services. Cash donations to voluntary disaster relief organizations enables them to purchase exactly what is most needed by the survivors and helps the local economy recover from the disaster as well.

Donated items require voluntary agencies to spend money and considerable time for sorting, inventorying, warehousing, and distribution.  Additionally, there is no state or federal transportation for donated goods unless they fill an identified critical need. There are a number of voluntary agencies receiving cash donations for Hurricane Irma relief - and more options will be provided as they are identified.

If you are interested in doing so now, please contact American Red Cross 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767);

Visit one of these three official disaster response websites. • •inform
