The Jewish Federation of Collier County is so grateful to those who have been calling in with credit card payments and sending in checks for Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. 100% of the relief monies that are being collected are going to the hurricane relief efforts.

 

The monies collected for Hurricane Irma are being distributed to the various organizations and synagogues here in Collier County.

 

We Are Here For You


Hurricane Irma swept up the southwest coast of Florida and tried to blow away our beautiful piece of paradise. But she was unsuccessful- we are here to stay. Hurricane Irma did, in fact, do considerable harm to our community.
