FINANCIAL RELIEF AVAILABLE FOR IATSE MEMBERS AFFECTED BY RECENT TORNADOES

Wednesday, May 29, 2019

The recent spate of tornadoes that have ravaged the Midwest and the Plains states have devastated towns and disrupted the lives of millions. Our hearts go out to the affected communities, and we thank the first responders and emergency volunteers for their continued efforts.

Financial relief is available for IATSE members affected by the storms through the Walsh/Di Tolla/Spivak Foundation. IATSE members in need of assistance should submit a written request to their local union. Local unions will then forward any requests to the Walsh/Di Tolla/Spivak Foundation for review by the Foundation’s trustees.

We also encourage IATSE members who are not directly affected by the tornadoes to donate to the Walsh/Di Tolla/Spivak Foundation. Money from the Foundation helps pay for shelter, food, clothing, and other necessities to help our affected IATSE sisters and brothers get through this difficult time.

Checks should be made payable to the “Walsh/Di Tolla/Spivak Foundation” and mailed to:

The Walsh/Di Tolla/Spivak Foundation c/o IATSE
207 W. 25th St., 4th Fl.
New York, NY 10001

Please let any members of your Local who may have been affected by the fires know that this assistance is available.
