Many employees of the FHDA family have been affected by the recent wildfires.  
Below are some ways to help!

 

Donate your sick or vacation leave to employees that have been affected by the fires.

FAQ's

How much vacation and PNL can I donate?

PNL and Vacation donations do not require that the employee maintain a balance of leave – that only applies to sick leave donation for eligible medical leaves. Therefore, an employee may donate any amount, up to their entire PNL or Vacation leave accrual. 

What if I don't have a specific person I want the leave to go to?  

If you don’t designate a specific person, the donated hours will be applied to another deserving colleague in need.  

What happens if my leave isn't used by someone?

Leave not used will be returned to the person that donated it.
