I hope this email finds you well. Last week, the BMUST Executive Committee distributed the first round of donations to all of the applicants. We want to thank those of you who generously donated to the fund.
Tomorrow, which is "Giving Tuesday", we will kick off the second round of collection. Usually held the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, "Giving Tuesday" is being launched on May 5 in response to the unprecedented need caused by COVD-19. In considering a charity or cause to donate to, please consider our relief fund. No amount is too small. Below are replies we received from some of the recipients of the first round of collections:
"Please tell me how I can thank all of my union brothers and sisters appropriately. My family and I are beyond grateful for your generosity."
"Oh my goodness!! Thank you so very much !! You have no idea how much this will help... thank you again for your kindness and extreme generosity!!"
"Bellmore/Merrick has always been like a family to me and I thank you from the bottom of my heart."
We will collect donations through June 15. Like last time, you can send your donation via Venmo to @BMUST. If you do not have a Venmo account, you can send a check made payable to BMUST to 1260 Meadowbrook Road, Merrick, NY 11566 . Please put "Coronavirus Relief Fund" in the comment section. The application is still available here. If your situation has changed or you were hesitant to complete it earlier, please fill it out. All the information is confidential.
Do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
