The Foundation for Working Families is a non-profit organization established by the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO and its affiliates to assist union families in Washington state in times of hardship or disaster. It has given cash assistance to hundreds of families who have suffered during flooding, wildfires, and other extraordinary circumstances.
Many union families are already suffering economic hardship amid the COVID-19 outbreak, which had its U.S. epicenter in Washington state. So the WSLC is urging all organizations and individuals to make generous tax-deductible contributions to the FFWF in anticipation of great need here. This cash assistance can provide temporary help to keep food on the table and a roof over the heads of Washington families.
