Support in Place: Save our Community & Small Biz

Support in Place - Save Clement Street Businesses

The Clement Street Merchant Association is raising funds for local businesses already being hit by the Shelter in Place order.  Huge thanks to Rachel from Tonlé who will distribute your support to businesses in need!

Why 67,890? 
The Richmond District is home to 67,890 residents - a dollar from each of us can go a LONG way. Let's join together and support our community!

Here's what we're doing:
1. Identifying the needs of local businesses
2. Buying gift cards with donated funds
3. Donating those gift cards to local charities to support San Franciscans in need

Here's how you can help:
1. Donate to the general fund
2. Leave a comment if you want your funds to go toward a particular business
3. Share the word -- send this fund to as many people and organizations as possible
4. Stay healthy, patient with one another, and persistent in helping our community
5. Check out what businesses are still open and consider visiting (https://www.clementstreetsf.com/)

Examples of Need:

Green Apple Books had to furlough its entire union staff from all three stores. They are trying to keep a handful of managers on staff to process internet orders so that when they open up, they will have at least a few people to help rebuild. They're also paying health insurance through the end of April for all staff (including those furloughed). So far landlords have not offered any rent abatement, and cash is quickly running low.
