Agency / Department: Rhode Island COVID-19 Emergency Hospital Relief Fund

Resource: Emergency support for workers in RI’s hopsitality industry

Details: Bartender Leishla Maldonado and industry friends have worked together to start a GoFundMe page for service industry workers. So far, they have been able to raise $10,000 to give service workers immediate relief. “I have also coordinated and offered support with hospitality volunteers free childcare for the month, a free meal service by a local chef and an emergency housing option by the Dean hotel for any hospitality worker that had reached out to me,” says Maldonado. “Our goal is to raise as much money as possible, to help alleviate the financial needs of the service industry during these pressing times.”
