AREA Emergency Relief Fund for Puerto Rico and Florida

Helping in Times of Need


An Emergency Relief Fund, has been established to financially help Exchange Associates affected by the recent hurricanes that occurred in Puerto Rico and Florida.

The Exchange Retiree Employees Association (AREA) Emergency Relief Fund (AERF) serves as a depository for monies donated for financial assistance to active Exchange Associates in Puerto Rico and Florida who were impacted by the adverse weather conditions. The devastation in Puerto Rico following hurricanes Irma and Maria, in close proximity, is becoming clear as news slowly flows out of the area. In Florida, associates are also slowly putting the pieces of their lives back together following hurricane Irma.

If you would like to aid our Exchange family members affected in either area, you can make a monetary donation/contribution to the Relief Fund, please make checks payable to the AREA Emergency Relief Fund and send the donation/contribution to the address below.

P.O. Box 380614
Duncanville TX 75138-0614

Donations to the fund are tax deductible and will be distributed to those who were affected by the hurricanes in Puerto Rico and Florida. Cash donations need to be turned into a money order and then mailed to the address listed above along with the name and address of the contributor so that AREA can provide them a tax-free donation receipt.

The AREA Emergency Relief Coordinator (AERC) is Chuck Poffenbarger, cpoffen@earthlink.net or 972-296-0388.
