Want to help those affected by Florence?

Be sure you know where your money is going

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Many of you are asking how you can help those affected by Hurricane Florence.

The Better Business Bureau advises people to use reputable charities in disaster situations.

There are several crowd funding posts popping up. People claim they are raising money to help victims. Some are legit and some are not.

“Only give to people you know personally is usually a good rule of thumb. Because you never know if they will actually get those funds or supplies to the people that actually need it,” said Ande Kral, Better Business Bureau serving Central and South Alabama.
