If there are private individuals taking collections to drive themselves up to the affected areas could there be a way of making their addresses or drop off places public so that we can contribute.

Obviously financial donations will work, but some of us may have useful warm sweaters, sweatshirts, sweatpants, etc. that could be passed on as well as children's items and other things that may make the lives of those who have nothing just a little easier. I should imagine that things like soccer balls, basketballs, jump ropes, etc. will make the children in the centers feel that they can spend some time being a little normal in this time where life is far from normal for them.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 26 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $7 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
