The Hoboken Relief Fund, utilized last year to benefit those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, has been restarted to collect donations to be distributed to businesses displaced by the fire at 38 Jackson Street. Members of the community are invited to provide a tax-deductible donation to the fund at https://hobokenrelieffund.com.
Below is a statement from the board of the Hoboken Relief Fund:
“We’re heartbroken over the fire that has displaced so many local business owners in Southwest Hoboken. These businesses have been hit hard first by COVID-19, and now many with no home and no source of revenue right before the holiday season. We are glad to re-start the Hoboken Relief Fund, to collect money to benefit these affected business owners to help them at a time they need it the most. We encourage Hoboken residents who can afford to do so, to donate to this fund, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, 100% of which will be provided to the affected businesses. Thank you to the Mayor Bhalla and Councilman Ramos for reaching out about re-starting the fund and to all of the residents for their consideration of any funding amount.”
