The urge to do something when disaster strikes is great as the compassion God has put within us moves us to reach out to people in need and touch them with the love of Jesus. Your donations to Southern Baptist Disaster Relief through the North American Mission Board or the Baptist State Convention where a disaster has occurred is the best way to help Southern Baptists bring Help, Healing and Hope to people and communities. Any financial contribution, no matter how small, is better than a box of unsolicited items. Cash really is best!
"Unsolicited donated goods such as used clothing requires the added cost of storage and valuable disaster response staff and volunteer time, which could be better used helping meet people's real needs,” explained Daniel Stoecker, Executive Director of National VOAD.
If you feel God is leading you to collect and donate materials please do so responsibly by finding organizations that are prepared to receive and distribute the items. You should be prepared to provide transportation for anything you collect.
