JC Fundraiser for Hurricane Harvey Victims [Tuesday, 9/5]

Help Jersey City fundraise for victims of Hurricane Harvey this Tuesday, Sept. 5th from 7-10pm at Low Fidelity (Lo-Fi), Jersey City’s new bar in the Heights (328 Palisade Ave.)
 
JC Civic Beers is a group of Jersey City residents who meet up once a month to talk policy and advocacy work at the local, state, and federal levels over beers. They’ve partnered with Jersey City Ties, Not Lost JC, and, of course, Lo-Fi to host a night of concentrated giving to help relief efforts in Texas.
 
The suggested donation for attendance is $10 per person, and Lo-Fi will donate $1 for every drink purchased. Funds raised will be split between the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund and Wings of Rescue, an animal rescue organization that is flying animals out of affected areas.
 
Let’s rally, Jersey City! We are a huge community that is in a powerful position to help. If you cannot attend but still want to donate as a resident of Jersey City, please donate on your own through these organizations or others — feel free to share in the comments section other outlets for Jersey City residents to aid relief.
