TOMORROW is the last day that the clothing distribution center will be open at Shor Yoshuv. Anyone who still needs clothing should go directly to Shor Yoshuv from 8am-5pm and again from 8pm-10pm. Those who would like to submit clothing orders should send a detailed request to email@example.com
Due to the high demand of requests for cleanup assistance, we will be organizing another cleanup effort for TOMORROW. If anyone still requires assistance, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office to schedule.
We would like to give a tremendous THANK YOU to all of our volunteers from near and far who have been assisting us. If there is anyone available to assist us with our clean up effort TOMORROW, please come to the Achiezer office at 334 Central Avenue at 10am tomorrow where we will be dispatching groups of volunteers to homes for cleanup. Please email your name, phone number, and the amount of people you plan to come with to email@example.com.
FEMA FUNDING ADVISORY
Nassau residents are strongly encouraged to be sure to get into the system to be eligible for construction funding. To do so, please call (888) 684-4267 and be sure to include a summary of damages (boiler, electric, rood, mold, etc.) That information is relayed to FEMA who will then send a field inspector to the site, and the homeowner will sign an inspection confirmation waiver and work can then potentially begin.
Please be advised that due to the overwhelming needs, there will be a legal insurance clinic with J- Link. Details will be sent out before Shabbos.
