How to Help Families & Communities Impacted by Recent Natural Disasters
After a natural disaster, financial contributions to recognized relief and recovery organizations are the most impactful way to support communities in need. Monetary support helps local nonprofits quickly access and deploy vital resources needed on the ground, while also helping to revitalize local economies disrupted by the disaster.
Where Should I Donate?
There are literally hundreds of nonprofits on the ground doing great work. Here are just a handful of organizations that the MLB Players Trust has vetted and approved.
Team Rubicon Founded in 2010, Team Rubicon combines the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams. They have been on the ground in Kentucky clearing roadways, and will continue to deploy and serve.
American Red Cross One of America’s longest-running disaster relief agencies providing food, shelter, and clean up as well as other longer-term recovery services.
Salvation Army Another long-standing nonprofit providing food, drinks and shelter to survivors of the storms and rescue workers. Designate your gift to specific disaster areas here.
