What is SHARE or Shift Auction Hospitality and Restaurant Employee fund?

This fund provides one- time grants of up to $500 to support hospitality & restaurant employees facing unforeseen hardships due to COVID- 19 this holiday season. Grants will be provided to help cover rent, food, utilities and gifts. While we are new in the community, we have been in your shoes and are here to help.
