Federation Sets Up Referral System

Many groups from across the country are offering to come to the New Orleans area to help with rebuilding, so the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans has created the Volunteer Referral Program.

One such group is an adult mitzvah corps from Temple Shalom in Succasunna, NJ, which has offered to come down the week of December 26 to assist individual homeowners or businesses that need help. The group has build five Habitat for Humanity homes, and has liability coverage.

Those desiring their assistance can contact Teri Gross at the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans, 713.729.7000, ext. 364, or email terigross {at} jewishnola {dot} com. The service is offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Federation is providing volunteers with the names of homeowners, agencies, and congregations that requested assistance. The volunteers will then contact those requesting assistance. A volunteer's agreement, assumption of risk and release of liability will be required, and all other arrangements will be between the volunteers and the recipients.

Those who want assistance can complete the assistance request form, available from Gross, or online at www.jewishnola.com.
