New York—The relief fund for jewelers created in the wake of Hurricane Harvey is now looking to help those impacted by Michael.

Jewelers of America, the Diamond Council of America and National Jeweler started the Jewelers Disaster Relief Fund in 2017.

Originally intended to aid retailers impacted by Harvey, the organizations opted to expand the fund and make it permanent after Hurricane Irma hit the Southeast a few weeks later and wildfires were ravaging western states.

Now, the fund is in need of donations again to help the jewelers hit by Hurricane Michael, the devastating Category 4 storm that slammed into the Florida Panhandle last Wednesday, flattening entire towns.

Those who want to make a donation can visit the Disaster Relief Fund’s GoFundMe page.

Jewelers impacted by Hurricane Michael who need assistance should fill out this form.

Last year, the Jewelers Disaster Relief Fund raised about $30,000 and distributed to a total of 19 jewelers in Florida and Texas who applied for aid.
