New York State Funeral Directors Association

ALBANY, NY (August 31, 2017) -- The New York State Tribute Foundation, with its tradition of "charity, knowledge and education" in support of funeral service, has established a Disaster Relief Fund in the wake of the devastation left by Hurricane Harvey. Our thoughts and prayers are with those in Texas who have lost their lives, homes and businesses as a result of this disaster.

All New York funeral directors, funeral service suppliers and others affiliated with funeral service in the state are encouraged to donate to this fund. 100% of all donated funds will be directed to the Texas Funeral Directors Association Disaster Team. This team is made up of volunteers who will be deployed as soon as the roads are passable.

Funeral directors in the Gulf States will play a vital role in the long recovery process ahead. It makes perfect sense that New York State funeral directors help them get back on their feet as soon possible. Let's show our friends in Texas that New York leads the nation in compassion as well.

You may make your donation by credit card or make checks payable to the NYS TRIBUTE FOUNDATION - please indicate Disaster Relief Fund in the memo line - and mail to:
