How Can Newporters Help Japan's Disaster Victims?

What local organizations are coordinating efforts to help ease the crisis in Japan?

By now photos and videos of the devastation wreaked on northern Japan by earthquakes and the tsunami have flooded the internet. Even though the disaster is happening across the globe, there are still actions Newport residents can take to help. Although clothing and food donations to Newport's still go to locals in need, you can text 90999 with the keyword “Japan” to donate. The American Red Cross in Middletown is also accepting donations.

This week's question: What local organizations do you know of that are participating in relief and aid programs and how are you helping with relief efforts?
