We have been asked for our help by the North Carolina AFL-CIO to both identify Union workers who need help and to donate and/or give of ourselves to help those working Union families in need. Please help in whatever way you can.
The NC AFL-CIO is surveying the needs of impacted working union families affected by Hurricane Florence. Please fill out the link to the survey below in order to receive aid from our relief funds and resources. You may also donate to our Workers Relief Fund by visiting the link below.
Funds collected by the North Carolina AFL-CIO will be used to assist union members and their communities affected by the hurricane.
While we cannot make anyone whole, donating to the North Carolina Workers Relief Fund sends a message of solidarity and the knowledge that working people affected by this disaster are supported by Brothers and Sisters across the nation.
If you would like to send a check, make checks payable to NC State AFL-CIO with “NC Workers Relief Fund” on the memo line and send to:
