Event description

Description

We watched with alarm as family members, friends and countrymen throughout the Caribbean endured the recent devastation of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Irma and Maria’s unprecedented ferocity has cut a swathe of devastation throughout the Caribbean that has few parallels. There are several ways that we can assist those who need our help now and in the coming months when the media has shifted its attention.

A local group of Caribbean civic leaders, the Caribbean Community Disaster Relief Association of Connecticut, has organized a unified response to assist in recovery efforts of our neighboring islands. The Caribbean Disaster Relief group has determined the most immediate need is monetary contributions. We encourage other organizations to join us in these efforts to support the Caribbean community. The West Indian Foundation, Inc. will serve as the fiduciary agent to collect cash donations for hurricane relief that will be distributed to organizations that can provide direct and immediate assistance to the people on the ground. A Caribbean Disaster Relief account has been set up with Windsor Federal Savings & Loan. Your contribution is fully tax-deductible. For those wishing to contribute by check, you may send contributions directly to the West Indian Foundation office at 32 Wintonbury Avenue, Bloomfield, CT 06002 with a note stating that the donation is earmarked for the Caribbean Disaster Relief fund.

We ask that you keep the families of all the victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria in your thoughts and prayers during this time. Thank you in advance for your support.
