B'nai B'rith Opens Fund to Help Those Impacted by Hurricane Michael - Allocates $5,000 for Relief Efforts
B’nai B’rith International President Gary P. Saltzman and CEO Daniel S. Mariaschin have issued the following statement:
As the Florida Panhandle is left devastated by Hurricane Michael, now a tropical storm lashing the Carolinas, B’nai B’rith International is opening its disaster relief fund. B’nai B’rith is also allocating $5,000 to support relief efforts.
At least two are confirmed dead from the Category 4 storm but officials fear a far greater number of casualties will be discovered once rescue efforts are fully underway.
We will work with local groups in impacted areas to determine possible rebuilding projects.
B’nai B’rith began its disaster relief program of helping communities in distress in 1865, with a fundraising drive to aid victims of a cholera outbreak in pre-state Israel. Since then, B’nai B’rith has helped countless people across the globe who have faced adversity after natural and man-made disasters. Recent donations to our Disaster Relief Fund are helping victims of Hurricane Florence, Hawaii’s volcanic eruptions, community rebuilding after California wildfires and flood victims after Hurricane Harvey.
