Millions of people have been affected by the power of Hurricane Sandy. Our thoughts and prayers go out to our members and to all families that have experienced loss as a result of this storm.
Members have contacted the national office about donating to relief efforts. At this time, we encourage you to donate to the Red Cross, to the Salvation Army or to your favorite organization.
Following are a few Web sites you may wish to visit for additional information:
