Hurricane Michael was the third most intense hurricane landfall in the continental United States, according to NOAA’s Hurricane Research Division. If you would like to make a financial contribution to support recovery efforts, we recommend the following organizations:


  • Save the Children is providing hygiene kits, portable cribs, baby wipes, toys and children’s activities.
  • Humane Society Naples is a no-kill pet shelter that is sending rescue teams to towns affected by the hurricane to rescue animals.
  • GlobalGiving‘s Hurricane Michael Relief Fund supports local organizations by helping emergency medical workers “meet immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products and shelter.”
  • SBP, a national disaster recovery nonprofit, is providing services like gutting and mold remediation and help residents rebuild.
  • The Jewish Federation of North America’s Hurricane Relief Fund accepts online and mail-in donations.
The URJ also has an online chatroom to coordinate efforts for Hurricane Michael relief. Please contact Cara Lahr at (504) 861-3693 or if you would like assistance making a post.
