Christmas Emergency Fund: Helping York Countians Impacted by Hurricaine Ida

We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!

Help Your Neighbors Impacted by Hurricaine Ida

Each holiday season, the York Daily Record offers readers the opportunity to help our community through the Christmas Emergency Fund.

Hundreds of York County residents were affected by the remnants of Hurricane Ida when torrential rains overwhelmed parts of York County on Sept. 1, 2021. First responders braved flooded roadways to save lives during the height of the storm.

But Ida’s impact did not end when the rain stopped. Once the flood waters receded, the extent of the damage was evident in the debris and damage done to homes and other property – losses that were often not fully covered by insurance or FEMA grants.

Several organizations mobilized to help clean up from the flooding. Many of these groups are affiliated with the York County Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster movement.

To continue support for those who still have needs, the York County VOAD is creating a Long-Term Recovery Committee. This LTRC will work with the community to secure funding, in-kind or cash donations, material, and labor – both paid and volunteer – to bring as many homes as possible back to a safe, sanitary and secure condition.

Your gift to the 2021 York Daily Record Christmas Emergency Fund will go to help those families who still need help rebuilding after the storm.

Traditions Bank and the York County Community Foundation are partnering with us to collect and disburse donations – all free of charge so every penny goes to help local folks.

Please consider giving generously. You can make a donation online on this page or checks can be mailed to: YDR Christmas Emergency Fund C/O Traditions Bank, 226 Pauline Drive, York, PA 17402-0136.
