Hindu Community Supports Red Cross Relief Effort


The Harrisburg Organization for Hindu Religion and Culture presented a check for $1,453 to the Red Cross to support the earthquake relief effort in Nepal.

“Everyone in our community was watching what was happening to the people of Nepal,” noted Yadu Acharya, Executive Director of the Organization for Hindu Religion and Culture. “When the idea came up to raise money for earthquake relief…we all trusted the Red Cross to make the connection.”
