Hurricane Ian has torn through Southwest Florida, resulting in major flooding throughout central and west coast areas of the state. More than 33,000 people have been forced to evacuate their homes, and more than 2.5 million were left without power – making this one of the worst disasters in US history.
Thousands of Jews are left without food or shelter for the upcoming Jewish Holidays. They need our help.
Community4U has secured thousands of pounds of food and disaster relief supplies. We are currently in touch with dozens of Jewish organizations who can assist with distributing this aid where most needed and have arranged the first delivery of food to the Chabad’s in Tampa, Ft. Myers, Venice, and Punta Gorda. This first shipment by truck left Saturday night, October 1st, and consisted of cereals, crackers, pasta, drinks, paper goods, snacks, and more.
Please show your support and contribute to our Hurricane Ian Relief Fund to help pay for this aid to help the Jewish community for the Holidays.
According to Moshe Hezrony, Director of Community 4 U: “In the aftermath of a crisis, communities need food to sustain them – both with calories and the emotional support of knowing they are not alone. Our organization is able to mobilize quickly to leverage donations of critical food and other goods to help.”
Working with local partners, Community 4 U is able to ensure that the items delivered to meet local demand and go where needed most. One other approach that sets the organization apart is its focus on providing kosher food for those who need in the Jewish community.
