JOIN US AS WE COME TOGETHER, FROM HOME,
FOR THE BOTTOMLESS CLOSET
VIRTUAL SPRING LUNCHEON'S ONLINE AUCTION!
Due to the global health pandemic, Bottomless Closet will host the Spring Luncheon online at bit.ly/BCVirtualLunch. The funds we raise every year (half our operating budget) are more critical than ever before and now is the moment we need you to show up by staying home. In just a few short weeks, we transitioned our in-person client services to online client coaching, interview prep and workshops.
The current reality for our clients is startling:
- - 62% of working clients have been permanently or temporarily laid off and 20% have had their hours reduced.
- - 87% report that they will not be given paid sick leave if they get sick.
- - 67% of clients have no savings to cover their needs in the case of layoffs or illness.
“At first I didn’t think this would get so serious, then next thing I know I’m getting told I’m temporarily laid off, I can’t collect unemployment because I don’t yet have a NY ID, and have no foreseeable source of income. I am extremely stressed, I just FINALLY received an apartment after being homeless for over 5 years and things were going well, suddenly my life has flipped upside down and I’m not sure what I can even do!” – Kaley, BC Client
