Operation Helping Hands, a partnership between The Miami Herald and United Way of Miami-Dade, was established to provide South Florida residents with a way to reach out and help their neighbors in need following a disaster or humanitarian crisis.

Through Operation Helping Hands, you can help those affected by Hurricane Dorian!€™s devastation recover and rebuild. This includes victims in the Bahamas and other areas. With your generosity, 100% of donations to Operation Helping Hands will help meet the disaster-related needs and support long-term recovery throughout the affected regions. We work with local United Ways and other nonprofits on the ground in the impacted areas to bring relief and recovery to storm victims.
