Baltimore Jews have been working endlessly to provide Hurricane Sandy victims with the support they so desperately need.
According to the Jewish Times:
“The day after the storm on Oct. 31, efforts began. Frank Storch, founder and operator of the Chesed Fund, called Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler to help him arrange for the purchase of $135,000 worth of emergency supplies, including generators, 250 gas cans, 50 sump pumps, 1,000 lanterns and thousands of batteries from Home Depot.”
“The items were brought to New York just one day following the storm,” Storch said, “and sold to residents at the true and fair price- often at cost. Some paid with checks and IOUs, as trust triumphed avarice."
