Irma relief websites

Postby founderant » Tue Sep 12, 2017 3:24 pm

Decided to go to Floridadisaster.org, Red Cross, and Salvation Army websites to see where people could pick up donated water and food. The fist thing on their home page talked about how great they were and where to donate.

You would think that the first thing you would see is a map of the locations where you could get donated water and food.

I'm not saying it's not on their websites, but if it is, it's hard to find. Note to website admins: you can do better.

I don't know what floridadisaster.org is, but the Red Cross and Salvation Army are horrible charities when it comes to the amount of actual dollars donated actually reaching recipients..

Hers a list of very high rated charities that put the money where its needed well.

Driven, are you sure you are from Kalifornia? You make a lot of sense.

It seems they are more interested in getting money than helping people .
Yes they do some good but they like to have very high paid leadership .
Your local church should be able to locate other churches in the area and what is sent would go directly to the people that need help , without sucking up the goods and money sent . Side note a small church not the big money hungry ones .
To see things as they are not as they want you to see them .. With the stroke of a pen all you rights and freedom can end ...

Thanks for the info. Floridadisaster.org is the states information website, but I feel like it hits you with information overload and does not do a good job of providing basic water and food information for victims

My experience is that if you put up a website directng people to free food & water give aways, people from 5 states away will show up swearing they were in the hurricane area.

People's generosity to give during these episodes is often outpaced by other's greed.

"Got some ID"? "Oh uh no we lost it in the flood"! "

There are FEMA & Salvation Army trucks in the area no doubt.

The relief trucks driving through neighborhoods do provide a service , but they can not reach everyone. Having supply stations that people can drive to are nessaary to fill the void, but useless if people can not find them.

You will definitely need to limit what people can take at one time to limit your loss to scammers, but not listing the locations is not the answer.
