Federation is dedicated to fulfill our mission and values by leading a swift and powerful response to care for those in need. Through your generosity, leadership and volunteerism, we mobilize our network of partners to address urgent needs in the Jewish and general communities.

Federation’s Hurricanes Relief Fund is addressing urgent needs in the Jewish and general communities in the wake of several recent disasters in Florida, Houston, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.

  • Amid the recent disasters, the continental Federation system has raised more than $15.5 million to provide emergency relief.
  • Locally, our Jewish Volunteer Center has worked with our partner agencies and community synagogues to collect more than 900 pounds of supplies for those affected, including diapers, toiletries, medical supplies and non-perishable food.
  • We are working with other communities as well as organizations in the broader community. For instance, we are in close contact with the Puerto Rican/Hispanic Chamber of Commerce for Palm Beach County to assist in providing aid to emergency locations throughout Puerto Rico.

100% of your contribution to Federation’s Hurricanes Relief Fund will help people in need:

  • Urgently needed basics, including food and medicine
  • Assessing repair and cleanup needs
  • Long-term needs for victims, including trauma counseling

Donations to the Hurricanes Relief Fund will be distributed by our national partners at the Jewish Federations of North America to address the most urgent needs related to recent disasters. To give to relief funds for specific disasters, click here for Hurricane Irma and click here for Hurricane Harvey.

If you would like help coping with trauma, please call our partners at Alpert Jewish Family & Children’s Service at 561.684.1991.
