The majority of Curbside Chronicle vendors rely on magazine sales as their sole source of income. By purchasing a digital copy of Issue 62 from May 2020 or by making a donation online, you will help support the COVID-19 Vendor Fund. This fund will help provide financial assistance to vendors while they are unable to sell, including support for basic necessities like food and medications.
In addition to creating the vendor fund and suspending street sales, the Homeless Alliance has drastically changed all operations to limit the spread of the virus while also continuing to provide services to support some of the most vulnerable people in our community. You can stay up to date on their latest response and all of their needs by following the Homeless Alliance on Facebook.
