This outbreak is touching all of us, whether or not we come in contact with the coronavirus. Of course, on the frontlines of efforts to protect us from this pandemic are the healthcare workers and the first responders. They’re feeling pressures right now of which most of us are unaware.
As well, small businesses, particularly locally owned restaurants, are facing financial pressures as Brooklyn self-isolates to slow the spread of COVID-19. They’ve had to lay off workers, their revenues have dropped, or they’ve shuttered their doors completely. But many are still rolling by converting their operations to full-time takeout & delivery service.
We will work to help address both of these challenges, fueled by your tax-deductible donation.
