Support San Francisco Small Businesses

Support San Francisco Small Businesses
By Sophia Scherr
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to impact communities across the country and here in San Francisco, the San Francisco Council of District Merchants Associations (SFCDMA) is asking for your help in supporting small businesses and the people they employ during this unprecedented time.
What can you do to support your favorite San Francisco small businesses? The SFCDMA asks that you consider donating and sharing a recently-launched  GoFund me campaign with at least two other contacts to, encourage further online donations.
With the mandatory shelter in place order still in effect and the potential for it to be extended, local merchants such as your favorite clothing store, bar, café, restaurant, hair salon, gym or spa, are all entering a period of concern and jeopardy.
Donations will be passed directly to the SFCDMA member associations (see below) and will be distributed amongst the small businesses most in need. 100% of funds received will go to the neighborhoods listed. SFCDMA will pay all administrative fees.
