JEWISHcolorado Opens Houston Flood Relief Fund

Over the past two days heavy rain has contributed to wide-spread flooding in the greater Houston area, inundating hundreds of homes in high-density neighborhoods. The flooding has created a nightmare situation for thousands of others who have been shut off from municipal services, highways, and schools.

A number of Jewish families in the Houston community have been significantly impacted. The assessment of long-term damage is still underway, but it is estimated that it will take months to recover and rebuild.

After experiencing devastating floods in Colorado just a year and a half ago, we understand firsthand what the Houston community is going through. During our time of need, Jewish communities from around the world stepped up to assist us. More than 50% of the total donations we received were from donors living outside of Colorado. Just as the 1,200 donors and fellow Jews helped us raise over $608,000, it is now our turn to reciprocate.

Please make a contribution to help the community in Houston recover from this disaster. JEWISHcolorado has opened a mailbox to gather contributions. One hundred percent of all money raised will be allocated toward the relief efforts in Houston.

Donate now to the Houston Flood Relief Fund.
