Jewish Children’s Regional Service (JCRS) is doing its best to find ways to assist any Jewish family that has been flooded and impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
Based on our experiences with Hurricane Katrina and Rita and subsequent floods in Louisiana and Texas, our help has proven most effective weeks, months and years after the disasters, whenever logistics made it impossible for us to be a first responder. Examples of help we’ve provided has included Wal-Mart gift cards, basic household items, and necessary expenses for children.
JCRS has established the Jewish Children’s Regional Service’s Disaster Relief Fund that will help affected families over the long term, and in many cases, after the immediate help has stopped.
