August 7, 2014 -Cash best form of assistance for disaster survivors

As Hurricanes Iselle and Julio bear down on the Hawaiian Islands, please keep in mind the most effective form of public help is in the form of cash donations. Cash contributions allow professional relief organizations to purchase what is most urgently needed.  Cash donations require no transportation costs and involve no workers for sorting or distribution.  Cash donations allow relief supplies to be bought near the disaster site, thus stimulating the local economy and ensuring a quicker supply delivery.
A national donations network has been established to assist those wishing to donate to the charity or agency of choice.
