Support for Hurricane Relief Efforts

Oct 04, 2017

On behalf of the staff and Board of Fairfield County’s Community Foundation, we send continued thoughts and prayers to all those who have been impacted by the devastation from the recent hurricanes. We encourage the Fairfield County community to support relief efforts as soon as possible.

The Hispanic Federation and the Coalition of Community Organizations and Elected Officials has launched “Unidos”: A Hurricane Relief Fund for Hurricane Maria Victims in Puerto Rico.

The Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands (CFVI) has established The Fund for the Virgin Islands. Donations can be made using PayPal: Donate to a Fund.

The Mayor of Houston and the Greater Houston Community Foundation have established the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund to support immediate and long-term rebuilding efforts.

The Tampa Bay Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund has been activated through a collaboration of the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay, Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg, Pinellas Community Foundation, United Way of Citrus County, United Way of Hernando, United Way of Pasco, and United Way Suncoast. Donate to the regional recovery effort or choose a specific county. Additionally, the recently launched Disaster Relief Fund by Community Foundation of Collier County, covers Naples, Florida.

Hurricane relief efforts are also in place with the Red Cross, Save the Children and Americares.

With our thanks,
