Response to earthquakes in Turkey and Syria

How to Donate to Earthquakes in Turkey and Syria

The Livingston CARES mission includes helping with disaster relief and recovery efforts locally, regionally, statewide, nationally, and worldwide. We are watching and reading about the devastation and deaths caused by the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria. As of Friday, February 10th, the major media networks are reporting over 21,000 (and climbing) deaths. 

In response to the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, we are collecting donations to help advance the recovery efforts and immediate needs of those impacted. The dollars collected will help humanitarians and disaster relief organizations serving individuals, families, and communities impacted by the recent earthquakes in Turkey and Syria.

We are careful stewards of these funds, and as with all donations to CARES, your donation is tax-deductible.
