UCS Katrina Fund Nears $30,000

The UCS Katrina Courts and Families Recovery Fund has raised almost $30,000 to assist Gulf Coast court personnel and their families and aid in the efforts to restore the court system in the affected areas. Deeply moved by the devastation in the Gulf Coast region, UCS court employees instantly made the recovery fund a "court family" project. Literally within minutes of the UCS call for assistance, phone calls and emails poured in from employees around the state, requesting information on how to help.

Although the fund accepts only monetary contributions, many employees wanted to help beyond giving money. Some networked informally to find Hurricane Katrina related donation centers for food, clothing and other essential items. Others selflessly volunteered their time and talents and visited the region to provide project-specific assistance. Numerous employees offered suggestions on how best to assist their Gulf Coast court community colleagues.

For more information about the fund, contact Barry Clarke at 212-428-2127 or bclarke@courts.state.ny.us
