Disaster Response Efforts
Please Support Our Ongoing Efforts
The NATCA Disaster Response Committee (DRC) is in communication with the RVPs and Facility Representatives of the facilities affected by the recent/ongoing winter storms. The DRC is actively working to help members in dire conditions. If this applies to you, we urge you to contact us! We are mobilizing supplies and will respond as quickly as weather and road conditions allow us.
This winter weather continues a full court press on the lives of our membership that started in 2020. From wildfires in the West, a derecho in the Midwest, and the Gulf Coast being battered from hurricanes and tropical storms, the DRC is prepared to assist NATCA members and their family members.
NATCA established a disaster relief fund in 1992 in the wake of Hurricane Andrew in Florida. Following the devastating 2017 hurricane season, NATCA formed the DRC to manage the disaster relief fund and organize the relief process for NATCA members affected by a disaster. Due to the generosity of our membership, our fund has continued to grow and has provided assistance to those members affected when disaster strikes.
However, due to the extreme challenges of 2020, and now 2021, we need your help today to replenish funds used to help dozens of NATCA members this year. We have set a goal of raising $25,000 by the end of 1st quarter 2021 to replenish from the 2020 challenges.
