    I don’t have much money to spare this month, but I live close by and I’d be happy to host some of the displaced for a meal in the coming days. I also have some spare clothing/housewares I was planning on donating soon… Is there any system established for non-monetary donations?

      Not sure this helps, but the Red Cross said it is aiding four of the nine displaced people. Here are some ways to help the Red Cross: http://www.redcross.org/support
