The devastation from the spread of COVID-19 has been unimaginable.
Long Beach has a small but thriving artists and hospitality community. We are creative artists and hospitality workers – from food servers, to cooks, delivery drivers and housekeepers, to local event creators, community performers, and street vendors. Like many, our lives have been hit hard due to business closures, tourism cancellations, and programs being put on hold or ending with many of them never to return.
We started this relief fund with the goal of helping those in need as we face the coming months filled with uncertainties.
100% of the donations received here will go to artists and hospitality workers who have lost jobs and benefits, been laid off, in need of food and shelter, or no longer able to earn a living because of the virus pandemic.
A portion of all proceeds will go to the Arts Council of Long Beach and The Long Beach Coalition for Good Jobs & A Healthy Community. Your help in this crisis will get many lives back on track. Donations of any amount are welcome.
Thank you for your support.
