1199SEIU Members Mobilize Relief Efforts for Haiti

With more than 4,000 Haitian members of 1199SEIU, who live and work in Massachusetts nursing homes, hospitals, home care and community health centers, the earthquake that hit Haiti this January hit many close to home.

In the wake of the disaster, 1199SEIU has announced a donation of $1 million dollars to help support earthquake relief and has partnered with Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino and the city’s Public Health Commission, to coordinate a support and referral center at 1199’s Boston office to assist family and friends of those affected by the earthquake.

As the need for help grows, financial donations are the most critical need right now. The Union is working with UNICEF to provide emergency relief in the areas of water and sanitation, nutrition, child protection and education. Click here to learn more on how you can help.
