OPEIU Relief Fund
Updated On: Nov 03, 2017

OPEIU local unions and individual members have been extremely generous and responsive to our calls for support of the OPEIU Relief Fund for those affected by recent hurricanes. The funds you have donated have been quickly distributed to those OPEIU members in greatest need in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico.

Despite these efforts, we still have many OPEIU members in great need of help to rebuild following these storms, particularly in Puerto Rico where the destruction has been overwhelming and has affected nearly all residents of the island. We also anticipate there will be a tremendous need for assistance from members affected by this week’s wildfires in California, where 40 people have died, more than 150 are still missing and hundreds of homes have been destroyed.

If you are able, we hope you’ll please consider making a donation to the OPEIU Relief Fund. All donations will go directly to those affected by these recent natural disasters. There are absolutely no administrative fees; one-hundred percent of your contribution will be sent directly to those families in need.

Checks can be sent as follows:

Mary Mahoney
Secretary-Treasurer
OPEIU

80 Eighth Avenue, 6th Floor
New York, NY 10011

ATTENTION: OPEIU Relief Fund

Another way to help is through OPEIU’s Adopt a Generator program, by which local unions can provide a generator to a family living without electricity in Puerto Rico. As you are likely aware, it is anticipated that it will be several months before electricity is restored on the island. These generators will provide lifesaving power in the meantime.

OPEIU has negotiated to purchase a large number of generators at the very reasonable price of $600 each, plus tax and shipping. We are in the process of purchasing at least 30 more, and are hoping to keep costs in the range of $600-$800 per generator. If your local union is able, we ask that you consider donating to purchase one or more generators. Checks can be sent to the same address as above; please note “OPEIU Relief Fund – Adopt a Generator” on the check.

Thank you again for your kindness and overwhelming generosity. You can continue to check our website, www.opeiu.org, for updates.
