If you would like to make a monetary donation to help those in Craighead, Poinsett, Mississippi, Woodruff, and Jackson counties impacted by the Dec. 10 tornado outbreaks, you can now do so through the Arkansas Disaster Relief Program.

Checks should be made payable to DFA.

Mail to: DFA-OAS, PO Box 2485, Little Rock, AR 72203

The check memo should show a note indicating Donation for Disaster Relief.

Once received, DFA will deposit the funds into the Arkansas Disaster Relief Program fund to be utilized by ADEM.

If a donor wishes their donation to go to a specific community, a note should be written either on the check or be sent along with the check. DFA will notify ADEM of the amount specified for a community so they may process the funds to the correct entity.

All donations to the Arkansas Disaster Relief Program Fund are tax-deductible and donors will receive a receipt for tax purposes after donating.
