Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund

Jewish Federations of North America has opened an emergency relief fund to support communities and individuals in Houston, San Antonio, Galveston, Corpus Christi and other areas that have been hammered by Hurricane Harvey. With record breaking volumes of rain having fallen through the weekend and expected to continue through Wednesday, extensive damage is continuing to mount.

 

Lee Wunsch, CEO of the Houston Federation, reports that the amount of rain and resulting flooding has surpassed that of the massive storm two years ago. Bayous and tributaries are flooding beyond their banks and roads are impassable. People whose homes are flooding are being advised to go up to their roofs so they can be evacuated; emergency workers were evacuating stranded residents through the night.

 

In 2005, Houston was there for us. Let's be there for them now - to kick off relief efforts, the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans has donated $50,000 to the fund.
