HELPING hoboken BUILD back
We’re heartbroken over the fire that has displaced so many local business owners in Southwest Hoboken. These businesses have been hit hard first by COVID-19, and now many with no home and no source of revenue right before the holiday season.
We are glad to re-start the Hoboken Relief Fund, to collect money to benefit these affected business owners to help them at a time they need it the most. We encourage Hoboken residents who can afford to do so, to donate to this fund, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, 100% of which will be provided to the affected businesses.
Thank you to Mayor Bhalla and Councilman Ramos for reaching out about re-starting the fund and to all of the residents for their consideration of any funding amount.
