“Thousands of people’s lives have been devastated by the Harvey and the subsequent rain this hurricane brought, and continues to bring to Texas and the Gulf Coast region”, said Jewish Federation Executive Director Jason Moss. “The Greater San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys’ Jewish community is ready to respond to provide support to those most in need, and our thoughts and prayers go to all of those affected by this destructive storm.”
Community members wishing to make contributions for this cause can do so in one of two ways. The first is to mail, call or drop-off contributions at the Jewish Federation (Attn: Hurricane Harvey Relief, 114A W. Lime Avenue, Monrovia, CA 91016 or 626.445.0810). Alternatively, you may donate to Jewish Federation of North America (JFNA) online at https://jewishfederations.org and click Help Victims of Hurricane Harvey.
All funds collected by the Jewish Federation of the Greater San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys will be directed to social welfare agencies in the affected areas serving both the Jewish and general communities. The Jewish Federation will absorb all administrative costs, ensuring that 100% of all donations go directly to aid those most grievously affected.
While we will not know the full extent of the storm’s damage for a number of days, it is safe to assume that there will be many people in need.
The American Red Cross has also encouraged people to make blood and platelet donations to support the blood needs of those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
For more information about the Jewish Federation’s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, or additional ways individuals can help those affected, please contact the Jewish Federation by calling 626.445.0810 or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jewish Federation of the Greater San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys and Jewish Federations across North America are committed to care for victims of global natural disasters, and have emergency relief plans into place to aid those in need.
