Give Me Astoria presents: The Astoria Relief Fund
By Loulou Chryssides
Besides its great food, creative culture, and vibrant spirit, Astoria is known for one thing in particular: its sense of community. And if the last couple of weeks have shown us anything, it’s that we all support and care for each and every individual in our neighborhood.
This spirit is why we at Give Me Astoria want to establish this GoFundMe: to come together and support those in our community who need it. The healthcare workers who are tirelessly ensuring the safety & well-being of their neighbors, the restaurants & their respective staff who are on the front lines to give back and feed the community, and the small businesses who are putting forth a brave face to keep their dreams afloat.
This relief fund will provide much-deserved additional support to those who are bravely working hard to keep things as normal as possible during this uncertain time. Give Me Astoria would like to do our part in ensuring those continuing to work know how grateful we truly are for their service. ALL PROCEEDS WILL BENEFIT ASTORIA BUSINESSES AND ORGANIZATIONS.
No amount is too little or too large, if you are able to donate. Please consider giving back to the neighborhood that has given us so much! And always remember: we love you, Astoria.
The Team at Give Me Astoria
