MILWAUKEE — One Milwaukee resident has taken it into his own hands to raise money for struggling industry workers in Milwaukee.

Due to the rapid spread of coronavirus, many bars, restaurants, and clubs are being forced to shut down. Because of these closures, many Milwaukee residents are struggling to find income.

These residents include bartenders, DJ's, servers, and photographers. These people are now facing a lack of income, and have no idea when things will go back to normal.

Because of this, one man has created a GoFundMe page to help raise money for those who need it now more than ever. According to the GoFundMe page, all donations will be distributed to industry friends in need.

The creator is starting with 20 people, 10 in which he selected, and 10 randomly selected from a sign up on social media. Once the GoFundMe reaches $10K, he will pick another 20.
