With widespread devastation in Texas and Hurricane Irma quickly approaching the east coast, hurricane relief has become a popular choice for charity donations in recent weeks. But the Better Business Bureau wants to make sure your charity dollars are going to those you intend it for.
Chris Thetford is the Vice President of Communications at the Better Business Bureau in St. Louis. He says you should be weary of organizations seeking you out for donations.
Thetford says he hopes everyone will help those in need, but to make sure their money goes to those who need it.
