rebuilding efforts. A contingent of New York members is now on its way to provide on the ground support to
LIUNA families in Puerto Rico. Members have been joining in volunteer efforts across the Southeast United
States to help those affected as well.

LIUNA has also set up funds to provide monetary assistance for all of these efforts. Details on the funds and
how to make a contribution are below.
