FINANCIAL RELIEF AVAILABLE FOR IATSE MEMBERS AFFECTED BY THE SADDLERIDGE FIRE

IATSE Donation to Disaster Relief Japan

The Saddleridge Fire is creating widespread destruction in the area north of Los Angeles. Over 8,600 of our members live within the evacuation zone.

Financial relief is available for IATSE members affected by the fire 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 fire 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.
