We have shipped two large loads of supplies to New York. We have received word that what is needed now are monetary donations. We are no longer accepting supplies at the region offices or Canton office.
If you would like to make monetary donations we are suggesting the NYSNA Disaster Relief Fund-details listed below. Thank you for your generosity.
New York nurses are on the front lines of the response to Hurricane Sandy, taking heroic measures to care for their patients. Some of these same nurses lost everything. Many nurses who lost their homes, or suffered in other ways, are still on the job, caring for their patients.
We have established the NYSNA Disaster Relief Fund to help give direct aid to nurses who were hurt by the storm. If you would like to help nurses who have suffered losses, you can make a donation today. The fund will be administered by the NYSNA Board of Directors and staff, so that 100% of your donation will go directly to help nurses in need. The fund will be dissolved after the resources have been distributed.
If you would like to help nurses who have suffered losses due to Sandy, you can make a donation to the NYSNA Disaster Relief Fund. Make your check out to “Disaster Relief Fund” and mail it to NYNSA Disaster Relief Fund, 11 Cornell Rd., Latham, NY 12110, or go to http://www.nysna.org/news/hurricaneSandy/donate.htm to complete a safe, secure online donation.
Please note: Donations made to the Disaster Relief Fund are not tax deductible.
