Postal Employees Relief Fund
The loss or damage of a home caused by a natural disaster is a traumatic and emotional event. It is understandable that there may be some period of time that an individual must take to assess their loss, what steps they need to take to move forward after the loss, and their ability to get back on their feet.
The Postal Employee Relief Fund (PERF) is sometimes the only resource available to postal employees in their time of need.
Thanks to the generosity of our postal family, PERF has provided more than $15 million in grants to 3,000 postal employees. PERF was established in 1990, in the aftermath of Hurricane Hugo and the California earthquakes. PERF distributed more than $8 million in grants after Hurricane Katrina (in 2005). With your assistance, PERF continues ready to provide assistance to postal employees in times of need.
