The CSA has received many requests for information on assisting those in islands devastated by Hurricanes Irma & Maria. It’s sometimes hard to figure out which charities are legitimate. So we have compiled a list here of those we have been able to confirm are legitimate along with various other resources. There are many more out there and we will continue to add to the list as we become aware of them and are able to confirm their legitimacy. If you know of other charities and resources, please email us at email@example.com and we will then update to the CSA Facebook page and this list.
