HURRICANE HARVEY RELIEFalt

Hurricane Harvey, the category 4 storm that bombarded the Gulf Coast on Saturday with home-ripping winds and extensive damage, continues to dump rain in large areas of central Texas. Despite difficult conditions emergency officials are working to assess the damage that has already left hundreds of thousands of people without power or access to food and water and shut down municipal services, highways, schools and community institutions.

Help us help the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Donations can be made through the JFNA emergency fund.

Jewish Federations are there when you need us most. Our network of local and international partners enables us to respond quickly and effectively. We fund urgently needed basics like food and medicine, and long-term needs like trauma counseling. We provide resources to emergency service providers so they can help where they’re most needed. Learn more about how we help in emergencies like these.

 

Donors are encouraged to read our Charitable Solicitation Disclosure Statement. The Jewish Federations of North America is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit organization.
