The Late Show host Stephen Colbert had this to say about the devastation in the Bahamas:

"It is unimaginable what the people of the Bahamas are going through right now. I wanted to find out a way that we could help even just a little bit, so this morning I called my friend José Andrés of World Central Kitchen, who is in the Bahamas right now to feed the survivors.

I asked José what we could do and he said to tell my audience not to forget these people. So we found charities where you can do your part."

The Red Cross is on the ground helping with key relief items like shelter, food, water, medicine, and communications.

Global Giving has established the Hurricane Dorian Relief Fund to provide emergency supplies and long-term assistance to help in rebuilding.

The Grand Bahama Disaster Relief Foundation is providing information on where donors in the United States can drop off supplies to send to the Bahamas.

World Central Kitchen, led by founder José Andrés, is currently on the ground setting up kitchens to feed those displaced by the hurricane.

Visit the websites to learn more about each organization, and to find out if donations are tax-deductible in the U.S.
