But I will make a donation like many of you will. There are many worthwhile agencies. Two that I have used in the past are:
Mennonite Central Committee - based here in Lancaster County; a number of my neighbors and acquaintances work for this group.
American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee - my own particular religious background.
And many more - see, for example, this list from AlterNet.
There is always the Red Cross, although I have shied away from this agency because of past management problems.
