INTERNATIONAL UNION OF PAINTERS AND ALLIED TRADES,
IUPAT DC 53 HELPING FLOOD VICTIMS (July 5, 2016)
Forty-four of West Virginia’s 55 counties have been affected by the recent flooding. More than 5,500 homes and busineses have been impacted by the floods. 1,500 of those structures, mostly houses, are damaged beyond repair. There have been over 20 lives lost. There is an estimated 3,100 West Virginians who are deemed homeless as a result of the flooding. Throughout all of this, the people of West Virginia have shown their resilience and have helped each other. Our fellow citizens have volunteered to help those in need and others from out of state who have also donated time and money also.
Our IUPAT DC 53 members are answering the call too. We have members on the ground in Elkview and are planning to continue to assist in the recovery efforts to help our neighbors toward recovery. Any member who would like to volunteer to assist in cleanup and rebuilding, contact your Business Representative or call 304-400-9645.
