AG Peterson Reminds Nebraskans to Donate Wisely following Hurricane Harvey

(Lincoln, NE)—Attorney General Doug Peterson reminds Nebraskans to donate wisely and avoid charities scams following Hurricane Harvey.

With today’s advances in technology, charitable giving is more prevalent than ever, especially in the wake of a natural disaster. Those same advances, though, pose unique challenges for well-intentioned donors.

“I know many Nebraskans want to generously reach out and help those affected by Hurricane Harvey, but before providing any information or contribution, they will want to make certain they are working with a reputable charitable organization that will make certain contributions go directly to those who need the most help,” stated Attorney General Doug Peterson.
