PRLog - Jan. 27, 2014 - LONG ISLAND, N.Y. -- It was just over two years ago that a small group of women, who's common denominator was that they were all wives of Journeymen Linemen, were discussing a series of recent on the job accidents. They decided to come together, to donate to the families of these workers. To their dismay, there was no Organization for them to donate to. This is what lead to what is now referred to as the 'Sisterhood', the National Sisterhood United for Journeymen Linemen.

"We weren't given a huge start up donation or had people on payroll from day one, couldn't afford fancy marketing tricks or to build memorials. We volunteered, donated and worked tirelessly for hours and days which turned into months and now years," said Rae Johnson,NSUJL President and Business Manager on the growth and success of the Organization.

When asked what drives NSUJL Vice President and Assistant Business Manager, Jessica Lackey, to put in the demanding hours, she states, "My job is minuscule compared to the reality of the people we help. It's not about me- it's about them. I just want to help our Brothers and Sisters in need. It's all for them. They are my driving force."

And help they do. The National Sisterhood United for Journeymen Linemen has already assisted over 40 families and donated in excess of $60,000 in their short time. Having gained their 501c3 status from the IRS in just under a year of filing, the door for Corporate Donations and Associate Memberships was opened early on.

The 'Sisterhood' also depends a lot on their Annual Fundraisers, including their NSUJL Golf Tournament, Climb for Lost Linemen and Linemen's Benefit Rodeo. "The fundraisers we do throughout the year are a vital part to raise funds to support our Mission,"says Amanda Wilson, Head of Fundraising and North Central Regional Director for NSUJL.

NSUJL Directors and Members will continue to work towards fullfilling their Mission; "Assisting families of Fallen/Injured I.B.E.W. Journeymen Linemen, Utility Linemen, Apprentice Linemen, Groundmen or Operators. It's NSUJL’s mission to provide emergency financial, emotional and physical assistance, in cases of work related injuries or death."

"While we will work towards growth, recognition and prosperity for our Organization - we pray there are fewer families that will need us," says NSUJL Treasurer and South East Regional Director Terry Riffe on the coming year.
