We understand that this is a difficult time for everyone affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic. Banding Together ATX has secured philanthropic donations to support workers in the music, hospitality, and service industry businesses who have suffered economically as a result of event cancelations and business closures. The funds and subsequent distribution are being managed by the Red River Cultural District (RRCD), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. While our organization focuses primarily on efforts related to the Red River District of downtown Austin, affected individuals across the city are encouraged to apply. We would like to thank everyone who has donated for their support in this crisis. For more about the mission of RRCD, please visit Our Mission.
Based on the current and most urgent needs of our community, this round of funding will be disbursed via grocery gift cards of denominations up to $100. We plan to be responsive to the needs of our community and with the situation evolving at such a rapid pace, future funds may be dispersed with different criteria or via different mechanisms.
