Jewish National Workers Alliance Opens Drive for War Relief for Russia

Download PDF for this date

A two-month campaign to raise funds for war relief for Russia was opened today by more than 275 branches of the Jewish National Workers Alliance in the United States and Canada. The organization hopes to send at least two mobile X-ray ambulance units, medical supplies and 50,000 packs of cigarettes to the Red Army.

Upon the conclusion of this drive, similar campaigns will be undertaken for China, Greece and other of the United Nations. The Alliance has already sent two ambulances to England and an X-ray ambulance to the Allied forces in the Middle East. An ambulance was given to the Canadian Red Cross by the Toronto branches of the Alliance last Sunday.
