Guild matches donations for Sandy relief

The Animation Guild will match contributions made by its members to the Walsh/Di Tolla/Spivak Foundation for Hurricane Sandy relief.

IATSE President Matthew D. Loeb announced Monday that the Trustees of the Walsh/Di Tolla/Spivak Foundation will be providing financial assistance to IATSE members and their families who are suffering serious financial hardship as a result of the devastation from Hurricane Sandy.

“Many IATSE members have suffered losses”, said President Loeb. “Some may face unexpected medical bills or need assistance with the costs of temporary housing. It is our hope that financial assistance from the Foundation will enable these members and their families to better cope with the challenges created by the aftermath of this storm.”

To qualify for the Guild match, checks should be made payable to the “Walsh/Di Tolla/Spivak Foundation” and be mailed to the Animation Guild, 1105 N. Hollywood Way, Burbank, CA 91505. The Guild will match the donation and forward it to the Foundation.

IATSE members needing assistance should submit a written request to their local union. The Local will then forward the request to the Foundation for review by the Trustees.
