The recent earthquake in Haiti has affected thousands of Haitian and Haitian-American UNITE HERE members across the country. To supplement the crucial day-to-day assistance that UNITE HERE affiliates are providing to their members, we have established the UNITE HERE Relief Fund. We encourage UNITE HERE members and affiliates to contribute to the fund, which will be used to provide aid and comfort to our union brothers and sisters who have been directly affected by this tragedy.
Please send contributions by mail to:
The UNITE HERE Relief Fund
