The JDC, which has opened a mailbox to receive contributions, also has established a special Coalition for Haiti Earthquake Response in the framework of its Jewish Coalition for Disaster Relief (JCDR) that includes a broad range of organizations. The JCPA is a long-standing member of this Coalition. A dedicated mailbox to receive contributions to the Coalition has been established. Checks made payable to JDC can be mailed to 711 Third Avenue, 10th floor, New York, NY 10017. Please indicate “JCDR-Haiti” on the memo line. On-line donations directly to the Coalition will be possible shortly and a link to the web address will be shared soon. As you know, other Jewish groups have opened mailboxes, including The Jewish Federations of North America and a number of JCPA national member agencies--American Jewish Committee, B'nai B’rith, Jewish Reconstructionist Federation, the Orthodox Union, Union of Reform Judaism, and United Synagogue for Conservative Judaism. Other Jewish communal organizations participating in the relief effort include American Jewish World Service and Mazon.
