Even as Hurricane Dorian continues to batter the eastern seaboard, and the scope of the devastation in the Bahamas is just beginning to be known, the Jewish Federation of Chicago has launched an emergency relief fund to aid recovery efforts.
Donations to the Jewish Federation Hurricane Dorian Relief Fund can be made at donatenow.juf.org/disaster , by calling (312) 444-2869, or by sending a check payable to Jewish Federation Hurricane Dorian Relief Fund to 30 S. Wells Street, #3017, Chicago, IL 60606.
As always, 100% of collected funds will provide relief for those impacted by this disaster, with Federation absorbing all administrative costs. Federation works with long-established relief organizations on the ground to provide the most effective, efficient and coordinated response. Past partners have included IsraAID, NECHAMA: Jewish Response to Disaster, and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee.
