Storm of 2016 Links to Assistance

The following links were obtained and provided by one Ryan Underhill. Some of these links are lists themselves, and there may be some duplication of charities or services, but he strove to be as thorough as possible, and he's adding to the list all the time. I'm not taking the time to vet it and remove duplicates; I don't have the time, and neither does he.


He nor I claim this to be a fully comprehensive list, but the best he could come up with in a pinch.
Of course, if you don't recognize a charity, be wary. Con artists come out of the woodwork when people are emotionally weakened after a disaster.


I'll try to add more to it as he updates the FB thread located here: Extensive List, Many More In The Comments
