PFA Disaster Relief Update
PA/NJ/CT – While everyone watched the events of Hurricane Sandy unfold closely on TV, our thoughts went to the PFA Members from the affected areas. We wondered who needed our help and how we could help. PFA National Headquarters has recently provided disaster relief funds to Members in the areas of Lavalette, New Jersey and Bridgeport, Connecticut. Members in each area were given $500 from the PFA Disaster Relief Fund. There are still funds available for PFA insured Members who are the victims of a natural disaster. For more information on obtaining funds, please contact Christine Puskar at 1-800-535-2071 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Christine will be glad to give you all the information needed to process a claim.
