Donation Relief

Making a financial contribution to a volunteer agency involved in disaster relief is the best way of helping people in need after a disaster.

Donate cash to The Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City. Donations are being accepted for Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, and Hurricane Maria.

Currently, the City encourages donation of items that are critically needed for recovery. These items will be delivered to families directly affected by the storm. Below is a list of items New York City is collecting to send to those affected by Hurricane Maria:

Diapers
Baby food
Batteries
First aid supplies
Feminine hygiene products

Please note the City is only collecting the items listed above. All donated items must be non-perishable, not second-hand, nor contain any liquids of any kind. Open or unsealed donations of food or hygiene supplies will not be accepted. Wet wipes will also not be accepted. Any other items will be kindly returned....


Donations are also needed for the victims of the Mexico earthquake.
