When Hurricane Katrina devastated the Louisiana and Mississippi Gulf Coast region in late August, thousands of UNITE HERE members were left without homes, basic necessities, and their jobs. Since then, UNITE HERE members and staff have helped implement local programs to locate and support displaced members, including visiting local shelters, providing wage and benefit information and financial assistance. But hurricane victims will continue to need our assistance in order to rebuild their lives and their communities, and create a stronger middle-class out of the devastation in the region.
This holiday season, please consider giving generously to the UNITE HERE Hurricane Relief Fund. Your contributions are tax-deductible and will go a long way to making sure that our members and their families can enjoy their holiday season.
