The Claims Conference is allocating up to $25,000 for a fund to help Holocaust survivors affected by the Southern California wildfires.
The organization said it will work with Jewish Family Services of San Diego and any other relevant agencies in providing emergency assistance to survivors displaced or otherwise affected.
Jewish Family Services will use the funds to provide emergency cash for home repairs, medication and utilities bills, and other urgent needs caused by the fires.
Holocaust survivors requiring assistance should call the emergency fire hot-line at Jewish Family Services of San Diego at (800) 295-4254.
