The greater Seattle community means the world to us, so we are trying to keep our contributions as local as possible, focusing on areas closest to our hearts: restaurants & hospitality, arts & culture, and students/education. Musang Community Kitchen is dedicated to providing food for those in need and raising relief for those in our hospitality industry community affected by the current COVID-19 Crisis. The goal of ArtsFund’s COVID-19 Arts Emergency Relief Fund is to help arts and cultural organizations maintain essential functions and retain core staff throughout the current public health crisis so that they are positioned to reopen when possible. A fund available to people working, living or accessing community services in Pike Place Market, who are facing a sudden financial crisis and need support to regain stability with a goal of achieving long-term economic stability for their community members.
