Review for Direct Relief , Santa Barbara, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I moved to Santa Barbara in 1966, my mother said, "Oh, that's where Direct Relief is!" As a doctor's wife, she had helped collect medicine samples for DRI from doctors' offices in our town in Kentucky.

DRI has come a long way since then, but still is one of the most effective, and cost effective, donations around. Who else multiplies your donation by 25 or 30 times? And they make sure the supplies they send actually are what's needed, and get to the people who need and can use them.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the Santa Barbara area: disaster supplies for local public schools; particulate masks during local wildfires; other local services.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

tell them not to change.

Role:  Donor & I donate regularly.
