Thursday, May 12, 2011 Alabama Chapter Establishes Relief Fund; APTA Creates Matching Program In response to the devastating tornadoes of April 27, the Alabama Chapter (ALPTA) has set up a relief fund to assist affected members and their families. APTA has created a matching fund program, allowing contributions to be matched 1:1, up to $5,000. Details on the Alabama relief efforts can be found at www.ptalabama.org/tornado-relief.
