How to help after hurricanes

Posted on: September 30th, 2017 by tgregory

First Harvey pummeled and flooded Houston, Port Arthur, Beaumont and much of southeast Texas. 

Then Irma lashed the Caribbean, the Florida Keys and Gulf Coast cities. And the Atlantic hurricane season doesn’t officially end until November. 

The Jewish Federation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee offers all of us a way to help these communities deal with the devastation, just as other communities stepped up for us when Nashville suffered historic flooding in 2010.

Go to and hit the “Donate Now” button when you see the screen on hurricane relief. “Be assured that 100 percent of your contribution will go directly to support the vitally needed supplies, services and financial assistance that will be provided to the flood victims,” says Mark Freedman, the Nashville Jewish Federation’s executive director. “We know you will answer the call, as so many others in 2010 responded for us. Thank you for making a difference, thank you for saving a life.” •
