IATSE Donation to Disaster Relief Japan

New York – The IATSE announced today that it is making a donation for Japanese disaster relief from the Walsh/DiTolla/Spivak Foundation, to be made through the Red Cross.  IATSE International President Matthew D. Loeb is the chairman of the Foundation.

In 2005, the Foundation established a special fund to help those IA members who suffered serious financial hardship in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.  Last year the Foundation also contributed to relief in Haiti, after the devastating January, 2010 earthquake.

The Foundation is  also the source of funding for scholarships awarded to the sons and daughters of IA members in good standing.
