For far too many families in our community, every day presents a struggle to meet basic needs. They face homelessness and food insecurity. They may not have reliable transportation to a job. Add to this the pressures we are all now facing as a result of the current COVID-19 Crisis and the struggle can turn a difficult situation into a real emergency.
The Hospitality Industry has been hit very hard during this crisis. The economic impact of reduced and lost work due to the coronavirus outbreak marks an unprecedented time in our community and will surely add to the need for those already struggling to make ends meet.
When you contribute to United Way’s Emergency Basic Needs Fund-for Hospitality workers, you will provide emergency assistance to those in the hospitality industry who are on the edge and can help prevent further escalation of an already difficult time. And when we all work together to help families in our local community avert financial crisis, and improve financial stability, we can prevent much more costly consequences that affect our entire community. Will you join us to help those in the hospitality industry who have been most affected by this crisis?
