  • 25 Ways To Help People Affected By Hurricane Irma

    Hurricane Irma may still be tearing its way through the Florida, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start donating towards relief efforts now

    By Brooke Schuldt

    Just weeks after watching Hurricane Harvey devastate parts of Texas, the country is gathering it’s strength to deal with another intense storm. Hurricane Irma spent most of last week ravaging the Caribbean, causing flooding, power outages, and deaths in the British and US Virgins Islands, Cuba, Puerto Rico, St. Martin, Haiti, and many more places just south of the United States. One of the most powerful hurricanes ever recorded, Irma is still making its way through Florida and Georgia. While we may not be close enough to volunteer and lend a helping hand, there are still plenty of ways that families in NYC can contribute to Irma relief efforts right now that can make a world of difference.
