Donate to Disaster Relief to help union families in Louisiana
The flooding in Louisiana has been devastating. More than 110,000 homes remain damaged; more than 265,000 children (30 percent of the school-age population of the state) have been out of school; and thousands of teachers, bus drivers, cafeteria workers, and other paraprofessionals have been displaced. Please show the union families affected by the flooding that we care: Donate what you can through NYSUT Disaster Relief.
NYSUT’s national affiliates, the NEA and AFT, are soliciting donations, and NYSUT staff will participate through a “dress down” week, with contributions destined to the relief effort. Send your individual or local union contributions to NYSUT Disaster Relief Fund, 800 Troy-Schenectady Road, Latham, NY, 12110, and the union will forward them to the national effort. Thank you in advance, on behalf of our sisters and brothers in Louisiana, for your help!
