|The amount of information that is available
regarding hurricane recovery efforts is overwhelming to say the
least. For this reason, the New Jersey State AFL-CIO has created
the “Sandy Recovery Toolkit” which can be found by
clicking HERE. This page makes it as easy as possible for union
families and New Jerseyans to get the information they need during
these difficult times.
If you need to apply for FEMA aid, if you lost
your job due to the storm, if you are concerned about the hazards
of cleaning your home, if you would like to volunteer or donate
to the cause, or if you are not sure where to begin, the “Sandy
Recovery Toolkit” will be a helpful resource to you. If
you have any resources which should be included on the toolkit,
please, contact Lee Sandberg at 609-989-8730 or via e-mail at
The New Jersey State AFL-CIO and national AFL-CIO
staff, continue to meet with affiliates to assess and respond
to the needs of union members. Working hand-in-hand with FEMA,
the Red Cross, and other supporting organizations we will ensure
that our communities get the support they need.
We are all in this together, and our goal is
to be there for our members and the community and to do everything
we can to make everyone’s lives easier.
