The Story

UFCW 8-Golden State Disaster Relief Fund for California Fire Victims

Fast-moving fires have displaced thousands of UFCW 8 members and their neighbors in Sonoma, Mendocino, Napa, Yuba and Lake Counties. With more than 3,500 homes and businesses destroyed, many have lost everything they own.

"Our hearts go out to our members and we stand in support of them, their families and all of the affected communities," said Jacques Loveall, UFCW 8 President.

Moments like this demonstrate why solidarity is so important.

UFCW 8 members who are experiencing financial hardship because of the California wild fires can apply to receive funds from the UFCW 8-Golden State Member Disaster Relief fund.  Please email [email protected] or contact your District Union Representative for assistance at (888) 834-4488.  

All funds raised will go directly to individual beneficiaries affected by these devastating fires. They will not be channeled through a charitable non-profit organization, which means donations are not tax deductible.

UFCW 8 Disaster Relief Update – October 14, 2017

The fires sweeping through Northern California have destroyed the homes and taken the lives of loved ones in our Union.

We currently know of at least 25 members of UFCW 8-Golden State who have lost their homes in these devastating fires.

At least one member, Sara Shepherd, is clinging to life after suffering burns to 60% of her body and the loss of a child. Her husband and other child were also badly burned.

There are no words to express our sorrow for their loss.

UFCW 8 has created a special fund for members in need of assistance. If you are a member in need of help please visit:
