Help Distressed Workers: Shutdown Disaster Relief

Social share icons

As the the Federal Shutdown drags on, it's created a crisis for many of our hardworking Brothers and Sisters. Most Federal Employees have been directed to not work or work without pay for an indefinite amount of time created financial hardships for families across the country. In addition, many Union workers employed by government contactors have been forced to stop projects as the shutdown continues.  As we have in the past with natural disaster relief, the AFL-CIO is stepping up to assist those in need with Shutdown Disaster Relief.

The AFL-CIO (including AFSCME Florida) and affliated organizations are seeking donations to help impacted working families including non-perishable/canned food, toiletries, diapers, wipes, formula and paper goods.  Please find your closest CLC/Chapter drop-off location and hours of operation from the list of 12 locations provided below.  Please indicate your name and/or Organization on the pad or sheet located at the drop off location. Distribution of your donations will initiate ASAP. The CLC/Chapter Field Rep’s information for your area is also listed below should you have questions or want to request a drop-off outside of the provided hours.

From all of us at AFSCME Florida, we thank you in advance for donating to the many struggling workers and families.
