RE: Flood Relief Fund for CUPE Alberta members

Dear Local executives, 

In light of the devastation caused by flooding across our province earlier this year, CUPE Alberta and CUPE British Columbia have created a Flood Relief Fund to assist CUPE members in Alberta who were affected by the 2013 floods.  We know that many locals have already donated time and money to a variety of funds and projects to assist in flood relief.

This fund is different in that the monies collected will be split amongst only CUPE Alberta members whose lives have been affected by this year’s flooding.  We are asking locals to donate to the Flood Relief Fund to assist our members in rebuilding their lives and homes, and restore hope for the future. 

We are hoping to have all donations into the CUPE Alberta Office by October 15, 2013.  This will enable us to distribute the funds in October.  

We also need your help in providing us with the names and addresses of your local members affected by the flood.  Receipt of this information as soon as possible would be appreciated.  Please forward this information as well as donations to:
