We know that disasters can change lives forever. While we can’t stop destructive events from happening, we can, as a Union, assist our members with their recovery. AFA established the disaster relief fund after September 11th to assist our members whose lives were placed in harms way. AFA members and retirees, whose primary residence are in the South Carolina counties of Charleston, Dorchester, Georgetown, Horry, Lexington, Orangeburg, Richland or Williamsburg, and who have suffered damage and/or dislocation, are eligible for $200.00 from the AFA-CWA Disaster Relief Fund. It is a gift made possible by the generosity of your fellow union sisters and brothers with AFA. More about the AFA Disaster Relief Fund
