Financial relief is available to IATSE members affected by the eruption of Mount Kilauea through the Walsh/DiTolla/Spivak Foundation.
The ongoing eruption and related destruction have devastated communities across Hawaii. Hundreds of homes have been destroyed, and thousands of people have been forced to evacuate. IATSE members can request financial relief to assist with recovery.
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.
Our hearts go out to the residents of Hawaii. We encourage IATSE members affected to request financial relief, and we thank the many firefighters, emergency responders, volunteers, and helpers in their efforts to assist people in those affected areas.
