Logan Arcade Staff Relief Fund

Hi all! As you likely know by now, Logan Arcade will be closed until (at least) April 1st (we have a gut feeling that this state-mandated closure will be extended). So for now, we’re trying to plan for four weeks of unexpected unemployment. Although we (Zespy + management) are currently working on ways to help ease financial burdens and generate income (ie: gifcards, etc.), we all recognize the need for direct and immediate help.

Also-- many of our amazing and awesome friends & patrons have asked how they can help. We are absolutely humbled by the concern and generosity from our friends, from the greater pinball and gaming communities, and from our customers.

To be clear: ALL funds raised here will be going directly to our whole family- which of course includes all of the bar staff that you know and love. We are also hoping to help our employees that you may not even know- ie: auxiliary crew that help us with tech and maintenance, Trancito and our cleaning crew who’ve been with us since day one, etc. All funds generated will be fairly & transparently allocated, and this campaign is being run by me (Melissa/GM), with oversight by Arunas (bar manager) and Zespy (owner).

If things change, we’ll be updating here and on our social media.

Thanks so much to all of our friends, customers, patrons… all of you have been a big part in creating the coolest, best, most supportive community we could have ever hoped for. Our crew of misfits, geeks and gamers is what keeps us going and what makes us strive to do AND be better. We can’t even put into words how much we appreciate your caring and concern.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this fundraiser, please email me at melissa@loganarcade. And please feel free to share this in any way that you think is appropriate!
