The AFT Disaster Relief Fund is used throughout the year to provide support to members and communities directly impacted by a natural or human-made disaster. In the past, this has included losses from hurricanes, wildfires, flooding and earthquakes. We continue to provide support to our union colleagues in Ukraine. Parts of Puerto Rico are still without power and drinking water, slammed by Hurricane Fiona at the very time the island’s agricultural crops were being harvested. People need help, particularly in the southern parts of the island. Jackson, Miss., is still without reliable water, so we sent bottled water. A new hurricane is barreling toward Florida, and we’re ready to help. All of the money raised for our disaster relief fund goes directly to helping AFT members. We’ve helped so many members this year; and with your contribution, we’ll be able to keep helping.
