Citizen Action

Flow Chart

We have developed a "Flow Chart" to show the steps required to supply disaster sites and other Local Service Organizations.  It is important to understand the steps and why they were created so that you make sure to send the RIGHT stuff to the RIGHT place. 

IF you are going to send supplies, it is critical that you do so correctly. 

Sending the wrong stuff to the wrong site is worse than sending nothing at all!  The wrong stuff clogs up the relief distribution system in the disaster zone. This is especially critical with clothing. NEVER send used clothing to a disaster zone without confirming what they need and how much of it they need.
