Florida families across the state desperately need your help.
As we are all aware, Hurricane Ian made landfall last week, destroying some areas and bringing disastrous flooding to a huge swath of our great state. Many of our Sisters and Brothers homes were completely destroyed or severely damaged and are still without power and the road to recovery will be long.
In response, the Florida AFL-CIO has rebooted our disaster relief fund for union members and community allies in the state who are struggling in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian. The funds you donate today will help provide supplies, food, water, and other essentials for Florida families in need. We have been working hand-in-hand with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, who are graciously supplying trucks, drivers, and boots on the ground to ensure the supplies get to the areas most devastated by the storm and supplies are being delivered to those affected.
There are two options available to make contributions –
- If you can write a check or make a commitment right now, please respond HERE, and the Florida State Fed will upfront your commitment and invoice you for the contribution. Please make the check out to the Florida AFL-CIO. The memo line should indicate the Florida Workers Relief Fund-Hurricane Ian. All checks should be mailed to the Florida AFL-CIO headquarters: 135 South Monroe Street, Tallahassee, FL 32301.
