    Tools for the Trades - The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers
    September 2005 - The hurricane that tore into New Orleans and the Gulf Coast on August 29, 2005 will rank as one of U.S. history’s great disasters, no less devastating than the San Francisco Earthquake and the Great Chicago Fire.

    Compounding the tragic loss of lives, homes and entire communities is the destruction of tools, equipment and other means for tradesmen and women to earn their living.

    To help these men and women and to give them the means to start rebuilding their lives, the IAM is calling on its members to donate tools that can be distributed to union members who have lost their means to make a living.

    Hand tools and portable power tools, in new or nearly new condition, can be collected and sent to IAM Headquarters, where they will be packaged and shipped to union here.
