PEF Relief Fund LogoThe PEF Relief Fund was established in 2012 to help members in the wake of natural disasters. Since then, PEF has activated it for additional weather-related emergencies, to assist members displaced after tragedies, and to protect and provide for healthcare heroes during COVID-19 surges.

We are now collecting donations to help our brothers and sisters in Buffalo and the surrounding area, who are digging out after one of the worst weather-related disasters ever to hit western New York, dumping more than four feet of snow in some areas and leaving at least 28 dead.

You can help your union brothers and sisters by donating to the PEF Relief Fund. PEF will be working to provide direct assistance to members impacted by the historic storm.
