Maximize the power of your contribution by visiting UnionPlus.org/Haiti and Union Plus will automatically double your contribution to the Solidarity Center. That means your $10 becomes $20, your $25 becomes $50 and your $100 becomes $200.

Union Plus has committed $100,000 through this dollar-for-dollar donation match to help Haitian earthquake relief efforts.

“Despite the millions of dollars raised already, the people of Haiti continue to need our help. That’s why we are committing $100,000 to double the donations made by union members to the Solidarity Center,” Union Plus President Leslie Tolf said.

The Solidarity Center is providing immediate life-saving relief supplies including food, clean water, medical supplies, blankets and tents to the Haitian people. Goods are currently being delivered to the Confederation of Haitian Workers training center, which is providing shelter, food, and medical assistance to more than 200 people.
