Union Community Fund Establishes Tornado Disaster Relief Effort

Yesterday, hundreds, if not thousands, of our friends and neighbors suffered life-changing setbacks as a result of the tornados that devastated our region. To help ease the financial burden on these unfortunate families, the Pioneer Valley AFL-CIO's charitable organization, the Union Community Fund, is launching a special Tornado Disaster Relief effort.

We hope you and your union will consider a generous donation to our fund our efforts to help our neighbors in this time of need. We encourage you to also please encourage your members to pass the hat and take up a collection at work.
