The Franciscan Relief Fund was established by the Franciscan Friars to bring relief to workers who are waiters, bus boys, waitresses, ticket takers, housekeepers, ushers, dish washers, bar tenders and many other people who work in the food, hospitality, service and entertainment industries and desperately need help during this worldwide pandemic. The fund will be used to supply $100 Stop & Shop grocery vouchers to all eligible applicants that reside in New York, New Jersey or Connecticut, and who may have no other source for help.
The Franciscan Friars are beggars. We never beg for ourselves, but only for others. Now we are begging for those who will fall through the cracks of recovery programs as they move into unemployment. We ask you to join us and help us help them. Please – give generously and with gratitude to the Franciscan Relief Fund.
