On May 12, a major earthquake hit Nepal at magnitude 7.3, destroying more buildings and homes weakened from the first earthquake less than three weeks ago. Across our SEIU family Local Unions, the Nurse Alliance, and our AAPI Caucus are in action to support relief efforts.
The International Union has set up a fund for our Local Unions and members to support relief efforts in Nepal. To contribute to that fund, please direct check donations to:
ATT: Nepal Fund
1800 Massachusetts Ave. NW
Washington DC 20036
Or, join 1199SEIU and the Asian American Pacific Islanders Caucus in supporting the people of Nepal.
In their effort to support the people of Nepal, 1199SEIU will be matching all contributions – $1 for $1 – up to $20,000.
With many left homeless as a result of these earthquakes and the monsoon season approaching, it is imperative that we help our brothers and sisters in Nepal now.
Contributions to the SEIU/Nepal Fund and 1199SEIU UHE/Nepal Fund are not tax deductible as charitable contributions.
