Neighbors Activates Disaster Recovery Fund For Irene Victims

MIAMI (CBS) – The Neighbors 4 Neighbors Disaster Recovery Fund has been activated for victims of Hurricane Irene.

Founded in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew, in partnership with CBS4 (then WCIX), Neighbors 4 Neighbors has responded to disasters locally, nationally and internationally for the past 19 years.

There are several ways to help. Here’s how:

  • Click here to make a secure credit card donation online
  • Call Neighbors 4 Neighbors at (305) 597-4404
  • Visit any BankAtlantic branch in South Florida
  • Mail a check to Neighbors 4 Neighbors, 8900 NW 18th Terrace, Miami, Fl. 33172

All donations will go to long term recovery efforts in the Bahamas, and other areas affected by Hurricane Irene.

Following Hurricane Katrina, Neighbors 4 Neighbors granted $395,000 to long term recovery groups that have been critical in rebuilding New Orleans and the Gulf Coast.

Long term recovery is critical after a disaster. In the immediate days and weeks after a disaster, attention is focused on saving lives, property and providing relief for survivors. But, it takes many resources to continue rebuilding after all the attention goes away. That’s why Neighbors 4 Neighbors uses your donations to help families throughout the entire process. Every dollar counts and all contributions are deeply appreciated.
