Service + Solidarity Spotlight: Union Members Step Up to Help Communities Affected by Hurricanes Fiona, Ian
Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.
Following two back-to-back hurricanes that devastated large parts of Puerto Rico and Florida last month, union members are doing what we do best: lending a helping hand to help each other regain our strength. In Florida, where Hurricane Ian caused widespread damage, union members (pictured above) are sorting through donated supplies and distributing them to families in need. And in Puerto Rico, members of the Puerto Rico Federation of Labor (pictured below) continue to receive shipments to the island, where badly needed food and other items are being organized and given out to fellow union members.
Together, we can help our union brothers, sisters and siblings in Florida and Puerto Rico recover during these difficult times. Please consider donating to the AFL-CIO’s Union Community Fund to help out!
