The following message is from IBEW International President Lonnie Stephenson regarding IBEW Members who have and or will be affect by the hurricanes ravaging our Nation…
Dear Sisters and Brothers:
Hurricane Harvey has wreaked devastation on the city of Houston, cities throughout the Gulf Coast region, and the island of Puerto Rico. Hurricane Irma is threatening the southeastern United States, we call on IBEW members throughout the United States and Canada to stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters and support the Hurricane Disaster Fund.
The money collected by the fund will be used to provide urgent relief to those most in need, including those who have lost their homes or sustained severe flooding damage.
Please make checks payable to the IBEW Unity Fund, indicating “Hurricane Disaster Fund” in the memo portion. IBEW members may make contributions with a credit card at https://secure.ibew.org/unityfund/.
Please give what you can and show what true IBEW solidarity can accomplish.
Lonnie R. Stephenson
