With an initial donation of $25,000, the Main Streets programs in Allston Village and Brighton have created Workers Relief Funds for local workers in Allston and Brighton who have lost their jobs due to coronavirus.
The funds will provide mini-grants of $250 to workers employed by Allston/Brighton businesses who have lost wages due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with a priority for those who have no access to unemployment benefits or other forms of financial assistance during this unprecedented time.
The initial donation comes from the Rabbi Abraham Halbfinger and Charlesview Charitable Fund at Charlesview, Inc.
Applications are available at allstonvillage.com and brightonmainstreets.org.
