Tzedakah Box to support Hurricane Relief

In the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, we ask ourselves to open up our hearts to our neighbors east of us. JRC's Tzedakah Box donations through the end of December 2018 will go to hurricane relief and recovery. You can leave your donations in the wooden tzedakah box in our front lobby.

Coming soon: More information on disaster relief & recovery, including renewal of our partnership with Manna from heaven Faith Apostolic Church.

For those who want to volunteer or contribute in the immediate aftermath - please see suggestions from How you can help NC from Indy Weekly & Durham CAN.
