The Local 802 Musicians' Emergency Relief Fund is in the midst of a Winter fundraising drive. For the many have shown their support we say, "Thank you for caring!"
Why contribute? Let's face it, life can take sudden turns. We work in a precarious business, and it doesn't take much to derail a thriving career.
The ERF and MAP stand ready to serve our members in times of trouble, whether it is a crisis of health, homelessness, addiction, family and relationship problems, career issues, or financial hardship. Caring, professional and completely confidential help is available at no cost to our members. Grants are made based on demonstrable need.
As the saying goes, we must take care of our own! It takes money to keep this program alive, and we are reaching out to many sources of funding. Please help support this great service by contributing now.
Visit our website, www.local802erf.org and make a secure PayPal contribution. Checks may be made payable to "Local 802 Musicians' ERF" and mailed to my attention at Local 802's offices.
