SEIU California’s Disaster Relief Fund – SEIU members and staff can support the families of those devastated by the California wildfires by making a financial donation to the SEIU California Disaster Relief Fund which helps support members in times of need.
Many SEIU union members are among the hundreds of thousands of people impacted by the out of control wildfires that burned through communities throughout California.
It’s times like these when being united matters. We must band together and use our power in numbers to provide support and relief to our brothers and sisters in California.
