The Texas Division of Emergency Management is announcing a program for those wishing to help those in distress from wildfires.
The Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster for Texas is designed to accept cash donations to organizations many are familiar with. They say cash donations are the most efficient and effective means to donate, rather than sending material goods. They say money provides flexibility to help victims of disasters in situations that may change quickly. Cash also minimizes problems involved in transporting, delivering, and storing the materials.
