The Health Trust commits to helping San Jose flood victims

Update Tuesday, March 28, 2017: Thank you to all who supported community members affected by San Jose’s flood emergency five weeks ago. We were able to raise $7,320 and as promised, have matched this amount! Again, thank you to all for your support.

Like everyone, The Health Trust was saddened by the recent floods and the terrible impact felt by our neighbors. As an organization, The Health Trust has a commitment to supporting our community’s most vulnerable residents, and in the wake of the devastating floods, many of these residents have faced unimaginable losses.  Many families hit were already struggling to get by, and are now faced with rebuilding their lives.

During these difficult times, those affected by the floods are in need of immediate assistance as they embark on the long road of rebuilding their lives. In an effort to support some of their immediate needs, The Health Trust has committed to matching donations made by staff, Board, and supporters, dollar for dollar, up to $10,000.

Those interested in donating, can make a donation by visiting our Support San Jose Flood Victims Donation Page. Donations made by Friday, March 10th, will be matched dollar for dollar, with 100$ of donations going to flood victims. Donations will be equally split between Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County, and CommUniverCity San Jose. Both of these groups are working directly with the schools and families most affected by the flood.

Please join The Health Trust in supporting our community during this challenging time.
