Update on NALC hurricane relief efforts

The NALC Disaster Relief Foundation has sprung into action to help union members affected by Hurricanes Fiona and Ian. NALC officers and staff have been in daily contact with branch presidents in Puerto Rico, Florida, and South Carolina assessing needs and providing aid. Dozens of emergency grants have already been wired to members who have lost homes, vehicles and other property in the worst hit parts of Puerto Rico and Florida. 

A delegation from the Disaster Relief Foundation (DRF) will soon visit Florida to deliver donated letter carrier uniforms and other vital supplies from DRF stockpiles in our Atlanta-area facility.

The national union has made a sizable financial contribution to the AFL-CIO’s disaster relief efforts in Puerto Rico to help with the island’s recovery. The Federation is also coordinating donations of urgently needed supplies with the assistance of the Seafarers International Union and the International Association of Machinists. Branches wishing to make donations can find information here.

“Lending a helping hand to brothers and sisters at their hour of greatest need is solidarity in action,” President Fred Rolando said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with our members and their families in all the affected areas – thanks to those of you who have contributed to the DRF, NALC in a position to help them through this difficult time.”
