Hurricane Matthew unleashed high winds and record setting flooding on the southeast coast over the weekend, with at least 24 reported deaths in the United States. The storm is gone, but flood waters in many of the affected states continue to rise, making rescue and recovery efforts more difficult.
The IAM has many members in the region ravished by Matthew. You can help those members by donating to the IAM Disaster Relief Fund.
Florida and North Carolina seem to have received the brunt of the damage, but Georgia, South Carolina, Virginia and Maryland have also been impacted with wind damage, flooding and power outages.
The IAM Disaster Relief Fund provides help in situations where our members and their families endure hardships due to natural disasters. All donations made to the IAM Disaster Relief Fund are tax deductible.
Donations can also be mailed to:
International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers
