Disaster Relief Effort
Dear Brother and Sisters:
Today I am requesting that Locals across our District consider providing assistance to our Brothers and Sisters that were affected by the recent hurricanes. Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands were impacted by Hurricane Irma and then sustained a direct hit from Hurricane Maria. We also had members in the District that were affected by Hurricane Harvey and Irma.
It is times like this that we have to stand up together and help our fellow Brothers and Sisters in their time of need not only through moral support but also through tangible support. I am including a list of items that are being requested and a letter from CWA District 3 Staff Representative Jorge Rodriguez, who is from Puerto Rico and whose family still resides there.
Monetary donations can be made by checks addressed to CWA District 3 Disaster Relief Fund "DRF" and marked as Hurricane Relief. The included link offers a way that monetary donations can be received through a website that will be transferred into the District 3 DRF. Any purchased items can be sent to the CWA District 3 South Florida office.
Checks should be sent to:
CWA District 3
3516 Covington Hwy
Decatur, GA 30032
Purchased items should be sent to:
CWA – South Florida State Office
4901 N.W. 17th Way, Suite 100A
Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33309
Any questions can be emailed to Billy O’Dell firstname.lastname@example.org .
Vice President – District 3
