Financial Assistance and Hurricane Relief for Affected IATSE Members

The IATSE has made several contributions to the Walsh/DiTolla/Spivak Foundation to provide financial assistance to affected IATSE members and their families in the aftermath of the Hurricanes in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico and wildfires in the California region.

Money from the Foundation helps pay for food, clothing, shelter, and other necessities to affected IATSE members. Individual IATSE members needing assistance should submit a written request to their local union. The local union will then forward the request to the Foundation for review by the Foundation trustees.

“Many people are dealing with unexpected costs of temporary housing or medical bills,” said IATSE International President Matthew D. Loeb. “The IATSE’s donation will help, but it’s also meant to kick-start fundraising from all local unions who can contribute.”

We thank all the IATSE local unions, members, and allies for their generosity and support in the relief efforts for our union family.
