Three hurricanes. Millions of workers devastated.
Here’s how you can help.
The United Labor Agency, the community affiliate of the Connecticut AFL-CIO, is making knotted fleece blankets to donate to those in Puerto Rico devastated by Hurricane Maria. They will be put together Thursday, September 28, from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at their office in Rocky Hill (56 Town Line Road). No experience required. ULA staff will be on hand to teach anyone how to make these blankets. Click here for a flyer. If you’re interested in making a donation, please reach out to Katherine Mamed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hurricane Irma pounded Florida. Please consider donating to the Florida Workers Relief Fund, which was established by the Florida AFL-CIO to help provide assistance for both the short and long term for the victims of this terrible storm. The funds they raise will be used to help purchase the essential items and services desperately needed by working families impacted by Hurricane Irma across the state of Florida.
Please also consider donating to the Texas Workers Relief Fund, overseen by the Texas AFL-CIO, to help those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. The fund has been established to assist workers and their families in their time of need. Funds are provided to help stabilize situations when issues occur such as natural disasters
Thank you so much for your generosity.
Your sister in solidarity,
Lori J. Pelletier, President
