Help from the AFA-CWA Disaster Relief Fund For the Louisiana Floods
We know that disasters can change lives forever. While we can’t stop destructive events from happening, we can, as a Union, assist our members with their recovery. AFA established the disaster relief fund after September 11th to assist our members whose lives were placed in harms way. AFA members and retirees, whose primary residence are in the Louisiana Parishes of Acadia, Ascesion, Avoyelles, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Evangeline, Iberia, Iberville, Jefferson Davis, Lafayette, Livingston, Pointe Coupee, St. Martin, St. Tammany Tangipahoa, Vermilion, Washington, and West Feliciana, and who have suffered damage and/or dislocation, are eligible for $200.00 from the AFA-CWA Disaster Relief Fund. It is a gift made possible by the generosity of your fellow union sisters and brothers with AFA.
If you would like to apply for AFA-CWA Disaster Relief Funds, download the Disaster Relief Fund Application and fax it to the International AFA EAP Department at 202-434-1411 or mail it to AFA-CWA EAP Department, 6th Floor, 501 Third Street NW Washington, D.C. 20001-2797. You can also e-mail this same information to email@example.com or phone in the necessary information to 1-800-424-2406.
We extend our heartfelt sympathy to you and your family during this difficult time.
