As Winter Storm Juno continues to hit the Northeast, NECHAMA is on high alert, monitoring the impact of the event. We have strong experience responding to winter storms and our team is readying to deploy if our services are requested. In the meantime, we are actively communicating with state-level contacts and Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) partners as the situation develops.
NECHAMA assisted the community of Rock Rapids, Iowa this past summer after they were inundated by a flash flood. Our team helped mobilize and equip local and regional volunteers as well as other voluntary organizations to aid the cleanup effort.
Recently, the City of Rock Rapids made a proclamation thanking NECHAMA for the much needed support and authorized a gift of $5,000!
NECHAMA joins with national charitable giving movement
NECHAMA has joined GivingTuesday, an effort that harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.
In the past 12-months, we have directly helped more families than any other year in our 18-year history. Together, we make these caring connections and concrete steps toward tikkun olam, repairing the world, everywhere we go.
Please take a moment to look at the work we've done over this busy year and support assistance to families in the future.
