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.
