How to Help IAM Members in Tennessee Impacted by Tornadoes

IAM members and their families in Tennessee need your help to recover from the devastating tornadoes in Tennessee.

According to CNN, thousands of Tennesseans are displaced or facing prolonged power outages after a series of powerful tornadoes and storms tore through the state over the weekend, shredding hundreds of homes and killing at least six people, including a mother and her toddler.

“Our hearts go out to the IAM members and their families in Tennessee who have been affected by these catastrophic tornadoes,” said IAM Southern Territory General Vice President Craig Martin. “In times like these, solidarity and support are crucial, and I urge our members and the community at large to come together to help those in need.”


The Disaster Relief Fund can provide immediate financial assistance to IAM members impacted by natural disasters. The IAM is often there before most monetary relief efforts can react.
