Spider Kelly's COVID-19 Staff Relief

Not even two weeks ago, we celebrated the 10 Year Anniversary of Spider Kelly's. Just five days after that, we closed our doors indefinitely (with the exception of take out!) for the safety of our staff and our community, laying off 30 staff members in the process.

 That's 30 people - many with families - whose rent, utilities, groceries,  tuition, and health care is now on the line without a reliable source of income. Despite this, the SK team has been INCREDIBLY supportive of each other offering links and connections to resources available, donating carry-out tips to the laid off staff, and providing regular updates with additional resources as they surface among other measures of support. The sense of community within this group of people has been remarkable!

I'm now reaching out to our family outside of the SK staff and asking that you show the same love! I am painfully aware of the impact COVID-19 has on everyone across the globe, but I know for industry people - my SK family specifically - their livelihoods are in jeopardy with no guaranteed or  foreseeable relief. Whatever you can do to help - if not through financial contribution, then by sharing this GoFundMe campaign with anyone and everyone you know - would offer some relief to the SK staff that you know and love. 

Thank you so much! Stay safe and wash your hands!
