AERF Assistance Available for Those Affected by Hurricane Sandy
Please Make a Donation
October 29, 2012

Hurricane Sandy, one of the largest storms ever to hit the United States, is battering the East Coast with torrential rains and fierce winds. Many of the 60 million residents in the stormís path are facing potential home damage, extended power outages, and the dangers of widespread flooding. In addition, nine states in this region have declared a state of emergency.

The ALPA Emergency Relief Fund (AERF) stands ready to help pilot members and their families adversely affected by this tremendous weather system. Simply visit the AERF web page and submit a request.

However, given the sheer size of the storm and the potential extent of the damage, AERF directors are also calling on ALPA members to please contribute generously to the Fund as well. All of your donations go to help pilots and their families in need, and contributions are tax-deductible in the U.S.

AERF is a non-profit corporation that provides for the immediate needs of ALPA pilots and their families who fall victim to natural disasters and other large-scale catastrophes. AERF is funded from contributions by ALPA members and staff, and is one of the many tangible benefits of belonging to the Association.
