Support Disabled GM Hunger Strikers from Home

Here are some ways that you can support the injured GM – Colombia workers of ASOTRECOL from home:

    1. Make a Donation to GM Hunger Strikers and their Families
      • Via Mail:
        Send check to “Wellspring UCC” with “Colombia relief” on the memo line. The mailing address is:
        Wellspring UCC
        Box 508
        Centreville, VA 20122
      • Via Paypal
        Visit www.wellspringucc.org . Be sure to write “Colombia relief” on the message subject line. A fee (less than 3%) is taken out of online donations from a bank card, with a fee closer to 6% for credit cards. Once a week these funds will be sent to the workers.
