Give Me Astoria was one small business selected to be part of the official Queens Memory Podcast! On episode 6, titled ‘Comeback’, the team behind Give Me Astoria spoke in detail about our efforts to give back to the essential and frontline workers via GoFundMe. The GoFundMe raised $25,000 with the help of the wonderful Astoria community to help support local restaurants while simultaneously buying meals for workers on the frontline.
‘Comeback’ highlights local businesses throughout Queens that have remained open and operating throughout the pandemic. With support from the Queens Public Library and Queens College, The Queens Memory COVID-19 project aims to document the experiences of residents during this unprecedented time.
A special thank you to Queens Memory and Brie Stodden for including us in this podcast. Our team is incredibly humbled and proud to share our story with the Queens community.
The podcast is now available for listening on all podcast platforms, including Spotify and Google Play. If you would like to learn more about the Queens Memory COVID-19 project, please visit its official website.
