Disaster Relief

loose change

In recent weeks we’ve seen a major natural disaster in the Philippines with tens of thousands dead and missing, and tornadoes in the Midwest.  Your Tri-State Better Business Bureau wants to remind our readers to be careful when deciding to which organizations you will make donations.

Unfortunately, as we’ve noted in the past, there are those who see these disasters as an opportunity to deceive compassionate donors to turn over their hard-earned finances to them.

Your BBB has a resource available upon request, the Give Wisely Guide.  You may obtain a copy from our office here in Evansville, Indiana by either visiting our office at 3101 N.
