Considering that some of our members have lost supplementals, have spouses that have lost employment, and we are in the midst of a global pandemic, we felt it might be useful to remind our members of an opportunity for emergency financial service that USD 259 offers in partnership with The United Way, SEIU, and UTW.
All year long, USD 259 employees are eligible for emergency financial assistance thru the USD 259 Friendship Fund.
Full-time employees are eligible for up to $800 in emergency financial assistance based on years of service in USD 259.
Assistant Para's are eligible for up to $400 in emergency financial assistance based on years of service in USD 259.
You can only receive this financial assistance once a year up to three times in your time as a USD 259 employee.
