AFL-CIO Union Community Fund Tops $500,000 Goal in Less Than a Month

Source: AFL-CIO

In a less than a month, the AFL-CIO Union Community Fund’s Hurricane Relief Fund surpassed its goal of raising $500,000 to help the survivors of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The fund collected $507,500 in donations by Oct. 4 and donations are still coming in. Some 3,725 donors generously gave an average gift of $136. The overwhelming generosity of union members and allies will go a long way toward helping restore the lives of working families that have lost homes and jobs along the Gulf Coast.

The Union Community Fund’s fund-raising drive is part of a massive effort by the union movement to aid hurricane survivors. Many union members, including firefighters, police, electrical workers, nurses and medical personnel, were the first on the scene to provide relief and aid to Gulf Coast survivors.
