Announcing Payroll Giving for Disaster Relief

As the season of charitable giving is upon us with the Christmas and Hanukkah holiday season and you consider your options for giving, please keep in mind that our NATCA brothers and sisters affected by the recent hurricanes still need vital assistance.

After the storms, our Union has provided vital assistance through the NATCA Disaster Relief Fund to 141 members in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. NATCA also has been able to send relief supplies in bulk to these areas. NATCA members have demonstrated the great strength and solidarity of our Union by supporting these members in need. But even with this support, so much more need for help exists. Please consider a donation to the NATCA Disaster Relief Fund. 100 percent of donations to this Fund directly support our NATCA brothers and sisters in need.

Also, NATCA is making it easier for members to continue giving. In addition to donating through the existing GoFundMe effort, NATCA members now can spread out their contributions over multiple pay periods by donating through an automatic payroll deduction. 
San Juan Tower member Kyrandgel Rios created a video to raise awareness about the situation in Puerto Rico and the essential services aviation safety professionals continue to provide during this crisis. Click here to watch the video, or watch below. 

Hurricane & Disaster Relief Update

NATCA President Paul Rinaldi and Southern Regional Vice President Jim Marinitti recently were in Puerto Rico to assess the situation and help our brothers and sisters. And Executive Vice President Trish Gilbert will be traveling to Puerto Rico with Marinitti in December to gain first-hand knowledge of the situation on the ground and provide assistance.

NATCA is proud of the resilience and dedication shown by our members in the Caribbean. San Juan Tower member Kyrandgel Rios recently shared an update about the state of Puerto Rico. He explained that minutes after Puerto Rico's governor announced that 50 percent power had been restored, power on the island once again was lost. Three power plants are now out of service. Hospitals and public buildings like shopping malls, though high on the priority list for power, remain without electricity. Some malls that were providing shelter to displaced people have also been forced to close. Flight standards district offices - located in malls - also have been evacuated. 

NATCA's Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) team members Kristine Mooso and Kristen Laubach recently traveled to Puerto Rico to assist our NATCA brothers and sisters. The following is their very sad first-hand accounts from their trip. Our heart aches for everyone who has been affected.

Thank you to everyone who has been so generous helping our NATCA brothers and sisters. Your commitment to each other matches your commitment to our Union, our profession, and the safety of the National Airspace System. It is inspiring.

In proud solidarity,
The National Executive Board
