Thanks to the efforts of UFCW and our partnership with the USDA, we have secured funding for retail grocery employees who served as essential workers over the last 3 years during the pandemic.
This effort would not have been possible without our involvement in politics, from time to time we hear we should not in engage in the political process, but I would say outcomes like this are exactly why we do. This is why it is so important for us to engage in the political process so that we can aggressively advocate for our partners like you.
On Feb 15th the application process will open. Funds will be distributed on a first come, first served basis, so we’re encouraging you to apply as soon as possible and share all this information with your coworkers. The video below will offer a step-by-step explanation on what you need to apply. Once the process opens, you can apply by visiting the UFCW Charity Foundation website.
Please watch the video below closely and mark the Feb 15th on your calendar.
