Intense rainstorms over several days caused flash flooding, which has destroyed thousands of homes and roads across the Northeast and acres of farmland vital to the livelihood of communities. The risk of extreme flooding is not yet over, as more rainfall is forecasted for the region. Your donation to the Northeast US Flood Relief Fund will meet emergency needs, such as the provision of food, water, and shelter, and provide long-term recovery support in affected communities.
All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts for people impacted by flooding in Vermont, Massachusetts, New York, and other Northeast US communities. Initially, funding will help first responders meet immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. The fund will then transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run primarily by local, vetted organizations in affected regions in Vermont and elsewhere.
