Giving Thanks, Remembering Those in Need

November 22, 2012

A Thanksgiving message from AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders and Sec.-Treas. Laura Reyes.

This Thanksgiving, we remember the many AFSCME members and their families that were severely affected by Hurricane Sandy. You can help these AFSCME sisters and brothers by making a contribution to our Fallen Heroes Fund, which provides assistance to members in need. Even a small amount helps. Click here to make a donation now.

More resources are available for AFSCME members seeking assistance, including Union Plus Disaster Relief Grants of $500 on a first come, first served basis to help eligible participants in the AFSCME Advantage/Union Plus Credit Card, Insurance or Mortgage programs who are facing financial hardships due to the disaster. To apply, AFSCME members who participate in the Union Plus Credit Card should call 1-877-761-5028. Participants in the Union Plus Insurance or Mortgage programs can call 1-800-472-2005. Download this flyer for more information.

Above all, we want to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving. Even in the hardest of times, there is always much to be thankful for. We are thankful for the work that AFSCME members do each and every day to make your communities a better place to live.
