Machinists Union Fire Victims

Donation protected
     IAMAW Woodworkers Local Lodge W12 is putting up this fundraiser to help three victims of the Mill Fire in Weed CA. 
     DeAndre Thomas-20 year IAM member, Terry Nygard-18 year IAM member and Darren Harris-1 year IAM member have lost everything. These members now have to restart their lives from the ground up after a devastating fire burnt down almost 100 homes here in Weed CA. 
     The funds from this will be split between the three members evenly and handled by LL W12. Our intent is to show these members what it means to be Union and the concept that an injury to one, is an injury to all. In a show of Solidarity, let’s help our Brothers jump start their lives. Attached is testimonials and photos of the devastation our Brothers and their families have endured.
      The LL Secretary Treasurer Kyle Justman will be named as the beneficiary of this fundraiser for technical reasons. If you or your respective Lodge, District or Territory wish to contribute outside of, please send a check made out to Woodworkers Local Lodge W12, to 3836 Altamont Dr, Klamath Falls, OR 97603. Please write “For Mill Fire”. 
      On Behalf of LL W12, we thank you for your support, thoughts and your prayers for our members and their families.
