Service Workers Coalition

This group, founded by ex-restaurant workers, is giving money to service workers who are sick or quarantined. It says it will try to give workers who have been laid off money as well for groceries and pharmacy costs. Email to apply.

One Fair Wage Service Workers’ Emergency Fund

One Fair Wage provides money to restaurant workers, delivery drivers and other tipped and service workers who have seen their income decline or can’t work because of quarantines or health concerns.

Children of Restaurant Employees (CORE)

This group provides support to restaurant employees who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 who also have children.

New York State Youth Leadership Council
