To help her out during this time of isolation due to Coronavirus, I hired Annie to walk our dog once a week, and she was extremely grateful. Since dog walking is permitted as essential, I am hoping that this small gesture will help to sustain her until we get the all clear and her business can resume.

Annie is not alone. Many people live on GIG income.

Do you know any service providers who are out of work now whom you could help out with a “gig?” Do you have neighbors who are sick and need someone to care for their pets? Let us know how you are helping or call us with your needs!

(Gig - A gig is a job that lasts a certain period of time, and gig workers are often on their own without an employer or unemployment insurance)
