FEMA Declared Disaster – Relief Resources (Texas)

Our D6 Vice President – Claude Cummings has asked us to reach out to you regarding the recent declared snowstorm disaster and share what relief resources are available. Many Texans suffered extensive property damage and some lost loved ones. As we spend time trying to assess the damage and start putting our lives back together, it’s important that our members know that CWA is there for them. The District has started the process of working with National to draw from the Disaster Relief Fund for those affected. The District
will be sending out additional details and updates as soon as they have been received. Please contact us at the Local, 806 793-6203, if you have any questions. Below are links that you can refer to.
