Help for Bubba, Krys & Gordo Gustavos

Hi everyone! If you know Bubba you know that he is not good at asking for help, in fact, it’s the opposite.

His business, Gordo Gustavos, is dedicated to serving and helping his community. Since Covid-19 started he has been feeding families in need and making deliveries to those who he knew could use a little help but didn’t want to ask him for it.

He is a truly valuable asset to the Santa Cruz community. With his food truck, catering company and his other business ventures through the years. Without expectation he does everything he can to love and support the people around him.

Due to Covid-19, as with most of the service industry, his business has been greatly impacted. All of his events for the foreseeable future have been cancelled. He is so grateful for special orders and the weekly Monday pick but the infrastructure that goes into running that operation can not sustain on pick up alone.

His lovely partner Krys is also out of work due to the pandemic and neither one of them were approved for any kind of government aid. On top of all of this, Krys has been dealing with health issues and has been in and out of the doctor/ ER.

As you can imagine this has been an incredibly stressful and challenging time for both of them. This GoFundMe will help with medical bills as well as keeping the business afloat while they navigate their game plan for the future. Thank you for donating and sharing ❤️
