As the holidays draw near, a number of our union brothers and sisters from Butte College have been left homeless and displaced by the horrific Camp Fire. I have not received reports on the effects on members from the Southern California wildfires but fear that there will be some.
Communications Workers of America (our national union) has set up a Wildfire Relief Fund, which you can donate to electronically, by check, or mail.
CWA Local 9404
Attn: Ginny Rains
195 Glen Cove Marina Rd.
Vallejo, CA 94591
Call for more information
Also, you can send gift cards to Stacey Burks who is coordinating for UPTE in Butte. Stacey can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Butte College has set up their own Go Fund Me for faculty and staff to make donations that can be accessed here: https://www.gofundme.com/butte-college-facultystaff-relief
These times are challenging to say the least and my thoughts are with everyone affected as well as the brave men and women responding to these fires.
