Rural letter carriers have always come to the call to help our brother and sisters through hard times. Since shipping and distributing goods in the affected area is nearly impossible, we are asking that you donate money to allow agencies on the ground to spend it as needed as this is the best immediate thing you can do to help those in need. You can donate through the Postal Employees Relief Fund. The link is provided below. Any donation, no matter the amount, is needed for our postal families. Please give today!
From tornadoes to floods and winter storms, many parts of the nation are experiencing extreme weather. The Postal Service is reminding employees they can turn to the Postal Employees Relief Fund (PERF). The fund helps postal employees and retirees whose homes were significantly damaged by natural disasters or house fires.
PERF is not an emergency relief or immediate needs replacement agency, such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) or the Red Cross or insurance companies that are paid to replace property. Rather, PERF (part of the Combined Federal Campaign) provides relief grants to help qualifying individuals get re-established after a loss, based on an application process.
Choose to help your fellow postal employees during open season by designating PERF as your contribution choice—CFC #10268.
Retired postal employees also can designate PERF as a contribution choice through their annuity checks—CFC #10268.
You also may make a contribution via personal check (a receipt for your tax-deductible donation will be mailed to you).
