UFCW Helps Hurricane Harvey Victims

In times of need, UFCW is there in the community making a difference.

UFCW Helps Victims Of Disaster

Message From Marc Perrone, UFCW International President: UFCW Helps Those Affected by Hurricane Harvey:

As we’ve all seen, Hurricane Harvey has swept through the gulf coast and devastated Houston and other coastal cities and towns. Among the millions impacted by this storm are over 15,000 hard-working UFCW members and their families. They are in urgent need of temporary shelter, clothes, fresh food, and other daily essentials.

We know these members and their families are struggling; but rest assured, they will not struggle alone.

Local UFCW unions and the International have launched a fundraising drive to provide vital financial assistance to all members impacted by this disaster. We are working with community partners and employers to provide additional assistance.

You can donate to the Local 455’s Membership Assistance Fund by filling out the donation form on this page.

If you are a UFCW member affected by Hurricane Harvey and need assistance, please click here. 

Because of your efforts and the efforts of Locals across the country, the UFCW raised over $1 million to help those affected by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. As we did then, any money raised will be distributed to members and families in need.

Thank you for helping our fellow UFCW members in this time of need, and for all you do for our union family and yours.

Sincerely,

Marc Perrone
President, UFCW International
