From the City of Culver City comes this message: “Our hearts go out to everyone impacted by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. Many of our community members have asked how they can help. According to FEMA, the best way to help is with cash donations to trusted organizations. Financial contributions to recognized disaster relief organizations are the fastest, most flexible, and most effective method of donating. Organizations on the ground know what items and quantities are needed, often buy in bulk with discounts and, if possible, purchase through area businesses, which supports economic recovery. To help, visit National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (National VOAD)’s page for a list of trusted organizations.
