Seattle area organizations helping Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic in wake of Hurricane Fiona

Seattle-based World Vision is preparing to send relief supplies to Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, which have been ravaged by Hurricane Fiona.

But it's in a holding pattern right now because power is still out across much of the island and the port is closed. Check here for ways to donate.

The Dominican Association of Washington also plans to send relief to victims in the Dominican Republic and is currently accepting donations. It is asking for various supplies such as toothpaste, diapers, disinfectant products and soap, clothing, and non-perishable food.

Donations to the Dominican Association of Washington can be made via its website. Donations can also be dropped off at its office on Capitol Hill Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays, between 2 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. More details here.
