The United College Employees of the Fashion Institute of Technology held its holiday party last week. But instead of giving members a traditional holiday gift emblazoned with the union logo, officers donated $1,000 to the NYSUT Disaster Relief Fund.
Local President Roberta Elins, Executive Vice President Linda Tains and Treasurer Paul Clement noted the donation was made on behalf of the entire membership because the local took advantage of a new online feature that allows donations to be made in someone’s name.
Please consider making a personal donation to NYSUT’s Disaster Relief Fund; the need is great as hundreds of NYSUT members continue to struggle in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. Once you have made an online donation, you can customize a certificate to be sent to the person you honored with your gift.
Thank you for your generosity.
