El Paso Community Foundation: Get Shift Done for El Paso

Host Organization: El Paso Community Foundationmdi-circle-small El Paso, TX, United States mdi-circle-small


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, many hourly wage service industry workers are out of jobs. Fewer volunteers are able to work their shifts at food banks and other nonprofit agencies dedicated to serving the food insecure.

Donations to the Get Shift Done for El Paso Fund will go directly to putting people in the service industry to work — and paying them. The goal is to provide El Pasoans Fighting Hunger with 40 workers on a daily basis and build from there as we go.

Get Shift Done for El Paso is the result of a partnership between the El Paso Community Foundation and Shiftsmart, the California- based technology platform the recently launched a successful program in the Dallas area, the Get Shift Done for North Texas Initiative.

Get Shift Done for El Paso will pay displaced restaurant workers $10 an hour to assist El Pasoans Fighting Hunger, a local food bank struggling to meet the needs of the community as social distancing measures deplete its volunteer corps.
