Please think generously and donate as you are able
Needs continue at elevated levels. Please be generous. There are so many who are struggling, and needs continue to run unusually high in light of the Corona Virus Pandemic impact.
In addition, there are many suffering from natural disasters, including volcanoes, flooding, typhoons, and fires – far too many endangered by violence caused by civil unrest and war in many locales, and uncountable numbers who are being hit by supply chain failures for food and medicines in many areas – not only locally, but globally. The result is that needs are greater now than anticipated, and the urgency is even greater than it might have been in better circumstances.
Please think generously and donate as you are able. Federated Jewish Charities, AJWS, HIAS, Mazon and so many other organizations are faced with requests from an overwhelming number of those in dire need, and our local charitable groups are experiencing needs not seen before. Please remember the many Tzedakah opportunities locally: Manna Meal, Covenant House, YWCA’s Sojourner’s Shelter, RCCR and all the other worthy causes in our community, and those beyond.
Make your donations directly to the worthy organization(s) of your choice, and be as generous as you are able.
