With so many businesses in our community shutting down in response to Covid-19, most service workers have suddenly lost a reliable income.
To support them, this site can be used to raise funds for local workers and other small businesses impacted by these closures.
If you are able to support a local business in Michigan, you can find them below
and contribute to them directly.
In order to slow the spread of the coronavirus, our state and local government is
restaurants, bars, cafes, nightclubs, movie theaters, small theater houses, and concert
venues to close. Elsewhere across our economy, closures are even more comprehensive.
While this is prudent from a public health perspective, these closures will have a real
and immediate economic impact to service workers across industries. It could mean missed
rent or inability to pay for basic needs for many.
While interest free loans are a good place to start, we believe we can do more to help
those affected, and our goal is to raise funds for businesses in our community affected
by this public health crisis.
We cannot all be working alongside all of the heroic healthcare workers testing and
treating coronavirus patients. Our goal with this project is to enable every member of our community
to do something today to mitigate the economic impact suffered by a huge number of
the service workers that help fuel our economy everyday.
