The SIU has established a new fund to assist our members and retirees living in areas affected by the recent hurricanes (this includes SIU affiliates). The fund’s name is Seafarers Disaster Aid Fund.
Click on the PayPal link HERE in order to donate. Contributions may be made using PayPal accounts, MasterCard, Visa, Maestro, Amex, Discover or any corresponding debit card. Please note that contributions cannot be accepted from contracted employers.
If donating by check, please make it out to Seafarers Disaster Aid Fund and mail to:
Seafarers Disaster Aid Fund
c/o SIU Secretary-Treasurer
5201 Auth Way
Camp Springs, MD 20746
The fund will pay out a maximum of $500 per person. We’ll have information soon about how to apply.
Unlike prior relief funds set up by the union, the plan is to make the Seafarers Disaster Aid Fund a permanent entity. This should help expedite donations and payments in the future.
