Coronavirus Active Response and
Engagement Service (C.A.R.E.S.)

We are all in this together.

In order to protect our older Sisters and Brothers from the COVID-19 virus, IATSE Young Workers stand ready to support our retirees in a variety of ways.

Get what you need. Safely.

If you aren’t comfortable going to the store to get food, or the pharmacy to get a prescription, a trusted Young Worker can help. All you need to do, is ask.

Connect with your union.

Social distancing can be isolating and lonely, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Buddy up with a Young Worker and they’ll check in on you from time to time.
