Donate money to Hurricane Sandy relief | United Federation of Teachers

Donate money to Hurricane Sandy relief | United Federation of Teachers
Dear colleagues,
Hundreds of UFT members have suffered devastating losses and had their lives shattered by Hurricane Sandy. We’ve received over 800 requests so far from members seeking urgent assistance. The stories they tell us are heart-wrenching. Many have lost their homes and most of their possessions.
We’ve set up a Hurricane Sandy drive to help UFT members in desperate need. Please consider assisting them with a monetary donation to the UFT Disaster Relief Fund today. Only through the generosity of our members who have been more fortunate in this storm will we be able to begin to address the magnitude of the need.
Donations can be made with a credit card or via PayPal at or by check payable to the UFT Disaster Relief Fund at UFT Disaster Relief Fund, c/o Vice President Karen Alford, UFT, 52 Broadway, 14th Floor, New York, NY, 10004.
Please donate now »
We know many members have also been asking for volunteer opportunities to help the storm-stricken neighborhoods, which suffered another blow yesterday with the nor’easter.
We are organizing Saturday Days of Action starting this Saturday and through the coming weeks. If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out our Hurricane Sandy volunteer form and we will alert you about opportunities as they arise.
Our members have been tremendous in this time of crisis. We appreciate each and every action you’ve taken since the storm struck to help those in need. I thank you for all that you’ve done for our students and our communities under these difficult circumstances.
Michael Mulgrew
