How to Help Victims of Hurricane Sandy

Received via e-mail from the Emergency Sandy Chesed Fund:

New York's leading Jewish chesed groups have created an emergency fund to support local victims of Hurricane Sandy. The "Emergency Sandy Chesed Fund" was formed at a meeting called by Councilman David G. Greenfield on November 1, 2012 to thank the groups for their efforts since the storm hit and to improve coordination between them.

All proceeds of the "Emergency Sandy Chesed Fund" will go directly to victims and victim services. No donations will be used for administration or overhead. The fund will be managed by Chevra Hatzalah with the support of the following organizations: local Hatzalah groups, Shomrim, Misaskim, Chaveirim, Met Council, Yad Ephraim and neighborhood Jewish Community Councils.

You can donate online here. If you prefer to mail a check please make it out to the “Hurricane Sandy Chesed Fund” and mail it to 1340 East 9th Street, Brooklyn, New York 11230 c/o Chevra Hatzalah.
