The IATSE Local 478 Response Team  

IATSE Local 478 created a response team during the floods of 2016, and we’ve done many community outreach and disaster response team projects since then. Recent 478 Response Team projects include: Lake Charles hurricane response, COVID-19 Medical Supply Drives, mask making, food distribution, and volunteering during COVID-19, 2 wheelchair ramps built for disabled members, work with the United Saints project to rebuild after tornadoes, and more.
