Get Shift Done – A New El Paso Work Initiative For Hospitality Workers
The El Paso Community Foundation along with the Get Shift Done organization is putting hospitality workers back to work at the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank.
Get Shift Done is a new work initiative that began over the weekend in El Paso by filling the first 40 daily shifts and providing wages of $10 an hour to workers left jobless by the coronavirus pandemic.
According to the El Paso Community Foundation, the Get Shift Done organization was created by Dallas business and community leaders Anurag Jain and Patrick Brandt to fill the gap between the reduction of volunteers and the increased need among food banks and other nonprofits with those from the food and service industry in need of supplemental income.
How To Apply
This is a great opportunity for someone who has been laid-off or furloughed and is healthy to get back to work. There is a lot of need in El Paso right now during these uncertain and difficult times with many folks struggling to find ways to make ends meet during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Get Shift Done work initiative is exactly what our community needed to employ displaced healthy hospitality workers all while helping out the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank. The foodbank currently needs as much help as they can get to continue to provide meals for food-insecure families, and distributing food to more than 130 partner agencies and programs, including pantries, churches, and shelters in El Paso, Culberson, and Hudspeth counties.
