As we continue down the path of dealing with the health and economic consequences of Coronavirus, many people and organizations are going to need help if you’re in a position to do so. On this page each day we will feature one local person, family or organization in need for your consideration.

If you need assistance, now might be a good time to create your own GoFundme.com page (we’re not affiliated). If you know someone in need who is using a different giving platform, please send us their page for consideration to feature them here.

Union Cafe, Axis Nightclub, Hubbard Grille Relief

Employees and our friends at Union Cafe, Axis Nightclub, and Hubbard Grille have been displaced until further notice.  This campaign is to raise money to help all the hourly workers get by until they can return to work.  They have most literally put the food on our table many times, now it’s our turn to help put food on theirs.  I placed a goal off a rough estimation of how many full-time employees there are at all three business and calculated a goal of a thousand per person.  I know this goal is lofty, even helping them pay a bill could go a long way. 

Columbus Artist Relief Fund

We’re raising money to help offset the financial impact felt by Columbus artists through lost work. Gig money that was going toward this month’s rent or next month’s taxes, the gas bill, food. This is open to individual artists only. ALL of the funds raised will go directly to artists in central Ohio. Priority will be given to BIPOC artists, transgender & nonbinary artists, and disabled artists – but the goal is to try to help as many artists with need in Columbus as possible.

BBQ got its deep hooks into me when I had a business in Austin, TX – you know, the home of dry rub, beef and sausage. I’ve indulged on pulled pork in NC topped with slaw and drenched in vinegar sauce and the savory of Memphis-style ribs to the sweetness of Kansas City. Columbus has its own mix of styles, like so many other cuisines that find a home in our midwest oasis.

The generosity and spirit of Ohioans has been on ample display these last few weeks. From financial contributions to making masks, donating food or volunteering, the coronavirus has brought out the best in so many people.

On Tuesday, May 5 those in need are asking you to step up and contribute once again. #GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

This new day is organized by GivingTuesday, and is being held in addition to the annually scheduled GivingTuesday event that will still take place on December 1, 2020. In partnership with GivingTuesday’s global network of leaders, partners, communities and generous individuals, this event is set to spark an increase in grassroots generosity, citizen engagement, business and philanthropy activation, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.

People can show their generosity in a variety of ways to participate in #GivingTuesdayNow–whether it’s helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to causes, every act of generosity counts. The movement is currently focused on opportunities to give back to communities and causes in safe ways that allow for social connection and kindness even while practicing physical distancing.

One of the community campaigns that are part of #GivingTuesdayNow is the Doing Better Initiative - an effort led by Urban Meyer and Corso Ventures to raise money to to fund meals for those in need.
