Thousands of UFT members rose to the occasion in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, serving admirably in evacuation centers across the city and providing comfort and solace to our fellow New Yorkers.
UFT members in the hospitals and the Visiting Nurse Service have been on the frontlines both during and in the aftermath of the storm.
As caregivers in schools, hospitals and child care programs, UFT members will be at the forefront as our communities begin down the long road to recovery. As we do this important work, we must not only care for our students but also for each other. We have all been affected by the storm. Many of us have lost homes; some of us have lost family or friends.
The UFT Disaster Relief Fund is collecting monetary donations for UFT members and their families in dire need to help them recover from this disaster.
