Jewish Federation of St. Louis is working diligently to help raise funds to support emergency relief for the Jewish and general communities in the Carolinas, Virginia, and other areas devastated by Hurricane Florence.
CNN.com reports that the hurricane made landfall on the night of September 13 as a Category 1 and is one of the largest to hit the region in decades. With record-breaking rain expected, extensive damage continues to mount. The effects associated with the storm are significant and could prove to be unlike anything experienced in that region.
The need for funds to support the victims of this tragic storm will be enormous and long-term. It will be days before anyone can even begin to assess the damages because rain and flooding have not stopped.
Jewish Federations of North America has opened a donation site to collect funds for victims of Hurricane Florence. One hundred percent of all contributions to this fund will be directed through the Jewish Federations of North America to support the Hurricane Florence Relief Fund as part of the Jewish communities’ collective response to this emergency. Thank you to those who have already donated to this important effort.
Please visit JewishFederations.org/Hurricane-Relief-Fund-2018 to donate.
