Fast-moving fires have displaced thousands of UFCW 8 members and their neighbors in Sonoma, Mendocino, Napa, Yuba and Lake Counties. With more than 3,500 homes and businesses destroyed, many have lost everything they own.
“Our hearts go out to our members and we stand in support of them, their families and all of the affected communities,” said Jacques Loveall, UFCW 8 President.
Moments like this demonstrate why solidarity is so important.
UFCW 8 members who are experiencing financial hardship because of the California wild fires can apply to receive funds from the UFCW 8-Golden State Member Disaster Relief fund. Please email DisasterRelief@ufcw8.org or contact your District Union Representative for further assistance.
Please visit www.ufcw8.org/donate to donate. All funds raised will go directly to individual beneficiaries affected by these devastating fires. They will not be channeled through a charitable non-profit organization, which means donations are not tax deductible.
Please contribute generously.
