Disaster Relief

Providing Relief In Times of Need

The Teamsters Disaster Relief Fund is a charitable 501(c)3 developed in 1991 to assist Teamster members who have suffered a loss from a disaster long after the media has forgotten. The fund receives donations from local unions and their affiliates and is currently developing a fundraising plan to support our efforts in providing relief when disaster strikes.

Through these programs, the Teamsters provide needed relief and outreach to our members.


The Teamsters Disaster Relief Fund needs your help in the aftermath of hurricanes that recently devastated parts of southern U.S.

The fund, specifically designed to assist members who have suffered a loss in natural disasters depends on the donations from our local unions and other affiliates.

A number of our brothers and sisters really need your help and support right now. Your tax-deductible donations WILL make a difference in the lives of a Teamster family. Please give generously!
