SAG contributes $50,000 to relief

William Daniels, president of Screen Actors Guild, announced Thursday that the SAG Foundation is donating $50,000 to New York state to assist in disaster relief. “This is one of the first sizable donations to be received from a union,” Daniels said in a letter to members. Daniels also noted that some SAG members were passengers aboard the hijacked planes and added, “We need to know the names of members who lost their lives, were injured, or lost family members [in the New York attack] to assess the impact upon our membership in order to help us determine an appropriate response.”
