Samuel Adams is giving up to $1000 to unemployed restaurant staff and bartenders under a partnership with the Greg Hill Foundation.
The two have teamed up to launch the Restaurant Strong Fund, which will help to offer relief to an industry hit hardest by COVID-19.
The fund is available for workers in 20 states including New York, California, Georgia, Illinois, Vermont and Texas.
The fund was started in mid-March in Massachusetts, and has recently expanded to 19 more states.
The fund’s website reads: “The original Restaurant Strong Fund raised nearly $500,000 from 2,000 individual donors in its first week, with support from athletes David Ortiz to Jimmy Develin and chefs Ming Tsai, Chris Coombs and Ken Oringer.”
Samuel Adams has donated over $2 million to start the fund. After other donations it currently sits at over $2.7 million.
To apply, you can visit their website and fill out an application by April 30th. Anyone who worked full time (30 hours minumum) is eligible, and must provide the last two pay stubs.
