The SIU is teaming up with national and local labor organizations, Seafarers-contracted vessel operators and other supporters to collect and deliver storm-relief supplies to Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Alaska.
Collection points include the hiring halls in Houston; Philadelphia; Jacksonville, Florida; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Tacoma, Washington; and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Donations are welcome at those locations. While the list of needed items may change, for now, the most-requested products include bottled water, flashlights and batteries.
We’ll post updates as they become available. A full list of the hiring halls is available HERE.
