I volunteer for the Canadian Red Cross and we only take money.  It is then wired to 
the area and spent as close to the disaster as possible.  This way the food is what 
they are used to eat and the other materials are what will be useful in that 

It is a very successful way of stimulating the local economy that is now suffering 
and it saves all the shipping and handling charges.  Cans of food collected in New 
Jersey would have to be sorted, packaged, shipped to an airport, flown halfway 
around the world, unpacked, trucked.....

Mondy to one of the main NGOs will reach the needy right away.  Materials bought 
locally are already being distributed.
