Continue Your Contributions to Support the Disaster Relief Fund
The NATCA Disaster Response Committee (DRC) continues to help our members in dire conditions in the Southwest Region after severe winter weather.
“As temperatures across Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas return to normal ranges, I want to take a moment to say thank you to the members of the NATCA Disaster Response Committee, all the volunteers, and those across the country who donated and continue to donate to assist our brothers and sisters who were affected by the recent frigid temperatures in the region,” said Southwest Regional Vice President Andrew LeBovidge. “Many lost power and water for significant periods and some had to flee to find shelter. Broken and leaking pipes caused damage to residences and many are still under ‘boil water’ directives. Our members and their families from Texas and Louisiana have certainly seen their share of natural disasters – more than their share, really. Let’s hope for a better spring and an uneventful hurricane season.”
“I couldn’t agree more,” added Fort Worth Center (ZFW) FacRep Nick Daniels. “NATCA’s DRC took so much stress off of the FacReps and members, once again helping us find everything from hotel rooms for those in need, equipment to clean up the damage, and continued checking on us daily, asking how they could help.
“Did I mention that the DRC is completely funded by donations and made up of volunteers? Having the entire NATCA family behind you when events like this occur truly makes all the difference in the world. Thank you to each and every person who reached out as many of us faced no heat and water for days. We felt the love and will always pay it forward. It’s another example of what this NATCA family is all about!”
NATCA’s Disaster Relief Fund aids members who have experienced catastrophic losses of property and helps provide a lifeline during those most desperate times. NATCA will work directly with affected members to help them purchase food, gasoline, or any other supplies that might be required. We will have volunteers ready to deliver supplies as soon as we know the need.
