Download PDF for this date

B’nai B’rith International has allocated an initial $1,000 for disaster relief in Mexico and called on its lodges, units and individual members to make similar contributions.

B’nai B’rith International president Gerald Kraft, who announced the plan to aid the victims of last week’s disastrous earthquake, said that funds would be distributed as soon as the most effective use of the money can be determined.

Checks should be made out to B’nai B’rith International, earmarked “Mexico Earthquake Relief,” and mailed to B’nai B’rith Community Services, 1640 Rhode Island Ave., N.W., Washington, D. C. 20036.
