Hurricane Sandy, one of the largest storms ever to hit the United States,
slammed the East Coast with torrential rains and fierce winds. Many of the millions of residents in the stormís path suffered home damage and 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.
