Join us in aiding our San Diego community in the aftermath of major flooding
Our San Diego region was hit by unprecedented rainfall and flooding over the last week which has led to hundreds of people being displaced from their homes, schools and businesses. County officials estimate $70 million worth of infrastructure damage, mostly in the southern part of the county. Our area anticipates more storms this week. At times like these, we are reminded of the Jewish value Lo Ta’Amod, which commands us to not stand idly by when others are suffering due to a natural disaster.
Join Impact Cubed, Leichtag Foundation, and our growing network of funders in supporting the vetted organizations and funds below.
- San Diego Foundation (SDF) created the San Diego Flood Response Fund to rapidly deploy flexible resources into the community and support organizations responding to the unprecedented flooding. SDF will match donations up to $100,000.
- Jackie Robinson Family YMCA’s Community Hub coordinates volunteers to clean up flood-damaged areas, offers showers for displaced people, and distributes essential items. They are collecting blankets, jackets, socks, towels, hygiene products, and more. Donate funds to the Jackie Robinson Family YMCA branch here.
- The County of San Diego Black Chamber of Commerce is providing grants and technical assistance to small businesses affected by the flooding.
- Legal Aid Society of San Diego created a resource for tenants and landlords and provides legal services to low-income and vulnerable individuals and families.
