Mayor Michael Gonnelli and the Secaucus Emergency Fund issued an “urgent request” on Tuesday for donations to assist the victims of the recent flooding in town.
Due to the record amount of rain Secaucus received on September 25, more than 70 homes were flooded. The Secaucus Department of Public Works, emergency workers and national volunteer organization Team Rubicon have been dealing with the clean up efforts.
Many homes damaged were not located in a flood zone and therefore did not have flood insurance. The Secaucus Emergency Fund is currently accepting donations to help those homeowners manage the financial burden of repairing their homes.
The request released by the Secaucus Emergency Fund indicates that “ALL funds donated will be used to help your neighbors in need.”
To donate, make a check payable to the Secaucus Emergency Fund at 101 Centre Avenue in Secaucus, New Jersey 07094. You can also donate online at www.secaucusemergencyfund.org. Be sure to write “flood relief” on the check.
The Secaucus Emergency Fund is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt entity and your donation is tax deductible.
