Hurricane Irma Relief Efforts will be underway starting Tuesday, September 12th.

Even as our community assesses damage and begins to clean up, we are mobilizing to help communities in the Florida Keys, Miami, the Everglades, and in Western Florida.

Volunteers will be collecting items (listed below) at the Adolph & Rose Levis JCC Sandler Center’s Beifield Auditorium on the Federation Campus, 21050 95th Ave. South in Boca Raton*.

Donation hours: 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm daily.

This is a community-wide effort that includes the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County and its agencies, Hands on Tzedakah, many synagogue and many other local organizations. The donations will be used here, locally, and sent wherever needed outside of the area. Below is a list of needed supplies.

Specific needs and requests will be assessed and prioritized before the first truckload of supplies is sent out.

*Must enter campus from the 95th Avenue South entrance. A valid driver’s license is required to enter campus. Directions to the drop off site will be given at the Guard Gate.

For more information, call Summer Faerman at 561-571-1274 or email at summer@handsontzedakah.org.

As our community recovers and cleans up after Hurricane Irma, the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, Ruth & Norman Rales Jewish Family Services and the Adolph & Rose Levis Jewish Community Center, as well as Hands on Tzedakah and many other partner organizations are prepared to aid those in need during the potential aftermath.

If you need help, here is a brief form to fill out about your situation.

If you can pitch in to help, consider being part of a vital corps of volunteers to aid those affected by the storm. You can sign up to join our efforts at either a distribution center, or by lending a hand with door-to-door assistance.

Our neighbors include so many frail seniors and others particularly vulnerable, and there is such potential for disruption and devastation for any of us.

As we urge you to take all precautions for you and yours, please know that, even when our offices and campus are closed, we are here!
