UFT members are always ready to step up and help out in a crisis, as evidenced by the thousands of caring educators and staffers who have gone to the hardest-hit areas of the city to help fellow New Yorkers struggling to recover from Hurricane Sandy. They have helped families clear debris from flooded homes, they have delivered medications to homebound residents, and they have distributed tons of food, water, batteries and other essential supplies.
But the need is still great and so much more work still must be done in the weeks and months ahead.
Even as we take care of our students and our communities, we want to make sure that our own members and their families who were affected by the unprecedented storm are helped as well.
That’s why we are encouraging members to make monetary donations to the UFT Disaster Relief Fund. You can be certain that your donation will go to help a fellow member in need.
Donations can be made online by going to www.uft.org/donate, or by sending a check to the UFT Disaster Relief Fund, c/o Vice President Karen Alford, UFT, 52 Broadway, 14th Floor, New York, NY 10004.
We have received more than 1,200 requests for urgent assistance from members since the hurricane. We will be able to meet that great need only if those members who were more fortunate step up.
