The Community Foundation for Mississippi has created a webpage of ways to help the community during the Jackson flood and water crisis, including how to give to the Helping Friends and Neighbors Fund (Disaster Relief Fund) at CFM. 

The Disaster Fund at CFM was created to respond to disasters in Mississippi. It will not take the place of local relief efforts, but rather enhance disaster responses. 

Because of our community knowledge and connections, relief donations can easily adapt to current needs at hand, whether it’s food, medical supplies, shelter or something completely unforeseen. 

Other information includes other local organizations to fund, official information channels and water donation and distribution sites across Jackson.
