Team Up With EKJ To Help Hurricane Harvey Victims


Hurricane Harvey flyer

”There are no greater treasures than the highest human qualities such as compassion, courage and hope. Not even tragic accident or disaster can destroy such treasures of the heart.”

– Daisaku Ikeda


Less than five years ago, more than 95,000 buildings were destroyed in Nassau and Suffolk County during Hurricane Sandy. So, to us, the devastation and humanitarian crisis caused by last week’s Hurricane Harvey hit close to home in our hearts. We’ve seen the images and read the stories, but we know that compassion is not enough to rebuild lives. The law office of Edelman, Krasin & Jaye has coordinated an effort with local places of worship and the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston to deliver much-needed supplies to families displaced by floods and wind damage.

We’re donating the truck, but we need your help filling it!

We’ve paid for an 18-wheeler that will travel more than 1,700 miles to Houston, Texas. Now we need your help filling our truck with supplies!

Join our Hurricane Harvey aid effort by purchasing any of the much-needed items below. Please label what is in each bag, as we’ll have to compile a full list of supplies in our truck. Supplies will be collected from our office through Wednesday, September 6 and at Jewish worship centers through Thursday, September 7.

Items needed for Hurricane Harvey aid:

  • Bottled water
  • Heavy duty trash bags
  • Packing supplies
  • Work gloves
  • Cleaning supplies, including old towels
  • Nonperishable food items
  • Grocery store gift cards
  • Home improvement store gift cards
