Peabody chips in with Hurricane Harvey relief fund

Peabody chips in with Hurricane Harvey relief fund

People all across America have pitched in to help with Hurricane Harvey relief, but government officials encourage Virginians to be careful about with whom they donate.

Wanting to help you help those folks suffering in Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana, KSLA News is sharing three websites that our investigative team often uses when researching whether certain charitable organizations are on the up-and-up.

There are many legitimate efforts underway to help Hurricane Harvey victims.

The United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team issued a warning Monday that thieves are taking advantage of the disaster by using email and social networks to send out bogus links that promise to let you help victims. Once you can trust the charity, determine how to best spend your contribution.

"We've had people who've dropped by the office already to make a donation, we've had credit card donations, coming in over the phone and we've had just a lot of calls of support", said Marsh.

Ask the charity for details on what it's doing to help in this particular crisis, Weiner says.

North Korea fired missile at half range, says Seoul
On Tuesday, the US military shot down a test ballistic missile near Hawaii on the same day as North Korea's missile launch. Ren Guoqiang told reporters that all parties should exercise restraint and avoid words and actions that escalate tension.

But wireless companies tend to wait until you officially cover the donation's cost - by paying your bill - before passing that money along to the charity. Those donation sites are usually best for cases that involve people you know. It's up to each of us to make sure our donations are used wisely.

It's up to you whether to go with a local charity that might know the area better, or a national charity that has wider reach.

But it can take time for new groups to get up and running, and in the meantime there's no track record for donors to check out.

Maggie Bergen of Dallas, Georgia, is seeking money for the Houston public schools, where her sister works. In addition, Jefferies as a firm will donate $1 million itself directly, and all 3,324 employees worldwide will be given the opportunity to donate to the relief effort their salary for today. "People should remember Houston and other parts of Texas later in the year".

You can also make donations at some Kroger and Publix grocery stores which are partnering with the American Red Cross.
