The death toll in Turkey from last month's earthquake has risen to over 45,000. The earthquake and aftershocks injured more than 108,000 people in Turkey and left millions sheltering in tents or seeking to move to other cities. More than 160,000 Turkish buildings collapsed or were severely damaged in the disaster, the worst in the country's modern history.
This past Friday, the Board of Supervisors held an Earthquake Relief Press Conference partnering with Northern Virginia Regional Commission and made a commitment as a community to raise $25,000 to Embrace Relief.Embrace Relief is working to provide food assistance directly on the ground in Turkey. Any donation will make a difference. Visit www.helpearthquakevictims.org
