Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our IATSE Live Entertainment Union sisters and brothers have faced prolonged unemployment with an unforeseeable end in sight. As we all know, the ramifications of long term unemployment can be devastating. For those of us who have been lucky enough to weather the COVID-19 storm, this is our chance to show our solidarity and offer some much needed support for the holiday season.
IATSE film and television locals have come together to collect donations of new, unwrapped toys of a $10 value or more, as well as monetary donations to provide grocery gift cards to the families in need.
If you wish to make a monetary donation, please scan the QR code in order to be directed to the donation site.
Please be sure to make any donations by the December 18th DEADLINE so that we can disburse the contributions to the families in time for the holidays. We appreciate your support and wish you the happiest and healthiest of holidays this season.
