Hurricane Florence Relief Fund Established

Many of us have watched the devastation brought about by Hurricane Florence in the Carolina region.  This most recent storm has been particularly devastating for many of our airport industry colleagues.  ACI-NA and AAAE have established the Hurricane Relief Fund to help airport employees impacted by the devastation in the Carolina region get back on their feet.

As we have done in the past when disaster strikes, ACI-NA and AAAE have jointly established a Relief Fund for airport employees impacted by this devastating natural disaster. Your donation is tax deductible and 100 percent of funds contributed will be distributed to those affected.

The Hurricane Relief Fund provides funds to airport employees in areas impacted by Hurricane Florence. ACI-NA and AAAE are working with the airports in the affected area to distribute the funds as needed. Eligibility for the funds is unrelated to membership in AAAE or ACI-NA and 100 percent of the funds go to airport employees in need. Selection criteria is based on need, and disbursement is ultimately approved by ACI-NA and AAAE.

Please give generously.  Thank you in advance for your support.  Please contact ACI-NA’s Debby McElroy or AAAE’s Spencer Dickerson with any questions.
