JEWISHcolorado Taking Donations for Hurricane Florence Assistance

Here at JEWISHcolorado our hearts and thoughts go out to all those impacted by Hurricane Florence. As part of our commitment to mobilize in times of need, we have opened a Hurricane Florence Relief Fund. The donations we receive from the community will be passed on to our national partner, Jewish Federations of North America, to assist individuals and communities with urgently needed basics like food and medicine, and long-term needs like trauma counseling in the areas devastated by the storm. Funding will also be made available to emergency service providers so they can help where they are most needed.

Hurricane Florence, the first major storm of the 2018 hurricane season to hit the U.S. mainland, slammed into the North Carolina coast. When disaster first strikes, immediate aid is needed to help communities get back on their feet. Afterwards, rebuilding and strengthening resilience can take years.

Help us help the victims of Hurricane Florence.

JEWISHcolorado will absorb all administrative costs of this emergency relief effort so that 100% of collected donations directly support those in need.
