The Fort Pierce based Peter W. Busch Family Foundation, in partnership with The Community Foundation Martin St. Lucie, opened The Serving Servers Fund that will provide direct assistance to bar and restaurant workers in Martin, St. Lucie, and Indian River Counties.
“We are working with and through The Community Foundation to get the funds in place and people the access to help as quickly as possible,” Philip Busch said. “We believe there is no better time than now to take care of those who have served us so well.”
Workers can access direct services for basic needs such as food, clothing, shelter and health services or financial assistance for rent, insurance and utilities. The Busch Family Foundation chose non-profits in each county to deliver relief services: United Against Poverty in partnership with St. Helen Catholic Church in Indian River County, House of Hope in Martin County and Mustard Seed Ministries in St. Lucie County.
