Established in 2017

This Fund is designed to provide short-term, emergency support to Touchstone Imaging employees or eligible dependents who are facing financial hardship as a result of certain unforeseen and unpreventable circumstances and who cannot afford housing, utilities and other basic living expenses. The Fund also allows company employees the opportunity to participate in this effort by contributing to the fund in support of fellow employees who may experience such a hardship.

The program can help employees that have experienced one of the following within the past 90 days:

  • Damage to home or essential belongings. Damage or loss caused by weather of any kind, a fire in your home, or damage to your primary vehicle caused by a wreck or weather.
  • Illness or Injury to an employee or a member of their household that causes an unexpected financial burden. Any type of illness or injury that causes a wage-earner to have significant unpaid time off work, or needed medical treatment with high costs not covered by insurance.
  • Death of someone in the household or of a relative for whom the employee is financially responsible. The loss of income, cost of burial or funeral expenses, or resulting medical bills prevents the employee from affording basic living expenses.
  • Any crime committed against the employee or a member of your household that causes financial issues or threatens safety. This includes, but is not limited to, robbery, arson, assault, domestic abuse, nonpayment of court-ordered child support, or extreme vandalism.

NOT COVERED: lawful wage garnishment, bankruptcy, child support you are required to pay, routine car repair or car failure, typical job layoffs, reduced work hours, divorce or separation, roommate vacancy, high utility bills, taxes, or accumulated personal debt
