Hurricane Irma: How can you help?

Hurricane Irma is one of the Atlantic ocean's largest and most destructive hurricane's in history with countless thousands of residents displaced and catastrophic damages across Florida, the Caribbean Islands, and the American South East.

While you may live far away, there are many ways for you to help.


Donate money

Charity Navigator (recommended, vetted charities)

Give blood


Donate food

Feeding Florida

Help animals

SPCA Florida


Volunteers should not self-deploy, as unexpectedly showing up to any of the communities that have been impacted by Hurricane Irma will create an additional burden for first responders.
