NEW YORK – Following the destruction of Hurricane Dorian, Attorney General Letitia James released the following statement and provided tips to donors about charitable giving to relief organizations:

“The destruction that Hurricane Dorian wreaked across the Bahamas is nothing short of a true humanitarian crisis – entire communities underwater, homes completely destroyed, and lives tragically lost. We anxiously wait for Dorian to pass through the southeast United States and hope for minimal impact and that communities remain safe. Today, and in the weeks and months to follow, it is imperative that we support all those who have been impacted, but I urge New Yorkers to be prudent when assessing what organizations to donate to. Sadly, bad actors too often take advantage of catastrophic events to scam generous individuals. New Yorkers and donors everywhere should direct their donations to organizations that they know and trust.”

To make sure that your contributions go to legitimate relief organizations and directly to help victims, please consider these tips...
