BATON ROUGE FLOOD RELIEF FUND

Relentless flooding has devastated southern Louisiana, now a federal disaster area. The once-in-a-millennium inundation has killed 13 people, destroyed or damaged 60,000 homes and forced tens of thousands to flee for their lives—including Federation staff and many from the local Jewish community. No one knows when they will be able to return home—or if anything will be there when they do.

 

Jewish Federations across North America are raising funds to support the Jewish Federation of Greater Baton Rouge as they work to rebuild. One hundred percent of your donation to will go to the Baton Rouge Flood Relief Fund.

 

Donors are encouraged to read our Charitable Solicitation Disclosure Statement.
The Jewish Federations of North America is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit organization.

 

Read a firsthand account of the devastation and urgent need from Brian Seymour (Palm Beach County), chair of JFNA’s Emergency Committee.
