CWA District 6 Vice President Claude Cummings joins volunteers at the Houston Convention Center, unloading supplies to aid the more than 10,000 people staying there.
CWA President Chris Shelton is urging CWA locals and members to help CWA members and their families in Texas who are suffering in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey:
"CWA is getting more information about our members and their families who are among the tens of thousands left devastated in Texas by the storms and flooding of Hurricane Harvey."
"As our District 6 locals continue to check on members, we're hearing that many people remain trapped in their homes, unable to get out because of high water and downed electrical wires. Many businesses are closed with no set date to reopen. CWA families need our help now."
"District 6 has established the CWA Harvey Hurricane Solidarity Fund to make sure that CWA members get the help they need. A committee of CWA local leaders from Texas, established by District 6 Vice President Claude Cummings, will oversee the fund, with the assistance of Administrative Director Judy Graves."
"CWA's Disaster Relief Fund also will be used to help our members hurt by Hurricane Harvey. It will take many months for CWA families in Texas to start recovering from the destruction of Hurricane Harvey. Let's help as much as we can."
Online donations are preferred, but you can also send a check payable to CWA Harvey Hurricane Solidarity Fund to the CWA District 6 office at this address:
