Tzedakah Resources for Responding to Disaster: Hurricane Sandy
By now, everyone knows that Hurricane Sandy ravaged homes and livelihoods throughout the Tri-State area and around the world in countries like Haiti. Our thoughts are with all those who have been affected by the terrible storm. What’s inspiring, however, is that individuals and communities are coming together to show their support, giving their time—and their money—to help people recover.
This week, Jewish Teen Funders Network released an incredible resource, “The Aftermath and Recovery: Superstorm Sandy” to help teen philanthropy foundations talk about how to effectively respond to disaster.
The guide includes “initial information about the extent and effects of Superstorm Sandy, which hit the New York Metropolitan area on October 29, 2012, tips for effective grantmaking after a natural disaster and links to educational materials and Jewish texts related to disaster relief,” as described in the Network’s newsletter announcing the resource.
Thank you to Jewish Teen Funders Network for this wonderful resource!
