Jews have faced crises throughout history. Whenever faced with emergencies, Jews traditionally respond with prayer, action, and adaptability. Today, we are faced with both a flood of emotions and a flood of requests for assistance from our local community.
As is the tradition, the Greater Charlotte Jewish community has responded to these needs with understanding, compassion, and financial support. But, as is also a tradition within the Jewish community, people need to participate. The escalation of COVID-19 calls for a coordinated response to meet the demands created by this unprecedented pandemic. And that coordinated response is the JewishCharlotte Emergency Response Fund.
The JewishCharlotte Emergency Response Fund will be guided by the Federation and fund individuals, families, and Jewish organizations affected by the pandemic. The assistance will allow organizations to preserve their workforces, and deliver critical services. 100% of every dollar raised will go directly to agencies to meet critical needs.
To help with this important effort, Please donate at www.jewishcharlotte.org or mail your check to Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte, 5007 Providence Road, Ste. 101, Charlotte, NC 28226.
