The fires that are happening in Maui are devastating to our members. Josh Green, Hawaii Governor, reported officials estimate 1,700 buildings were destroyed by the fires resulting in the loss of approximately 80% of Lahaina.
The horrific environment that has been affecting our Union Brothers, Sisters and Siblings is the reason I am reaching out to you. We need to come together as a family and help when and where we can.
District 9 has set up a CWA Disaster Wildfire Relief fund to help CWA members impacted by the fires. Every dollar donated to the CWA District 9 Disaster Wildfire Relief fund will go directly to assist CWA members in need of shelter, clothing, and household basics.
You can donate to the wildfire fund here: https://actionnetwork.org/fundraising/help-cwa-d9-members/
Checks may be made out to the CWA District 9 Disaster Wildfire Relief and mailed to:
CWA Local 9404
Attn: Ginny Raines
195 Glen Cove Marina Rd, Suite 101
Vallejo, CA 94591
Donations are not tax deductible.
The national CWA Disaster Relief Fund also will help our members hurt by the fires.
It will take years for CWA families to recover andrebuild their lives. Please help our brothers, sisters and siblings by making a contribution
