The Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California (JCCCNC) has established a fund to help the victims of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan on March 11, 2011.
The largest earthquake to ever hit Japan registered at a 8.9-magnitude and struck at 2:46 pm in northern Japan near the Tohoku region killing hundreds and injuring many more. The death toll is expected to rise as recovery efforts continue.
100% of the donations will go directly towards citizen relief efforts in the most affected areas.
At this time the JCCCNC is only accepting cash donations. Please no relief goods or supplies.
In 1995, the JCCCNC raised over $600,000 towards citizen relief efforts for the Great Hanshin Awaji Earthquake that killed over 6,000 people and left over 300,000 people homeless.
The funds raised helped organize volunteer efforts to get food and water directly to the victims, citizen search efforts, clothing for the homeless, essential supplies for women, children and especially seniors and helped to feed and rebuild orphanages in Kobe, Japan.
