|I work at Coffee Bean Co and recently lost my hours due to the current situation at hand. I went from a 40 hour work week to having to depend on my savings in the interim (they cannot give me any hours as of now). Anything helps, thank you!||John Doe||3/12/20||@johndoe - venmo||Yes; $20.||3/19/20|

|I am a non-binary barista working at Press Coffee in Phoenix. I am so thankful we are still open for business, but understandably, hours are being cut and I have been living paycheck to paycheck. These are very scary times and I am nervous about my rent, bills and how I will afford groceries over these next couple of months. I am incredibly grateful for this community and those who are able to donate. Anything helps, thank you so much ❤️||KC Lidstrom||3/20/20||@thriftynb - Venmo||Katie Cannon, $5.

|I barista for Yellow Brick Coffee in Tucson, I have been unable to work this past week due to being sick (with what I don't know although it doesn't appear to be covid-19). I am an uninsured non-binary femme artist and am struggling to save money right now. Despite being the primary barista, I am unsure of how the business will be affected in the coming months as we are a small shop that mostly services blue/white collar workers. I am concerned that coming back to work, my hours will be reduced and I will not make as much as I normally do in tips. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you 💖||Aubrey Gardner||3/20/20||@the_great_potoo - Venmo||Bulat Khromykh - $11||3/20/20|
|I'm a manager/barista for Cartel Coffee Lab in Downtown Phoenix. Our shop has been closed and my income cut out entirely. I am anxious and stressed about my upcoming bills and am desperately seeking employment elsewhere for the time being. Thank you to everyone who is being so helpful and kind to each other during this crisis. Much love for the Arizona coffee community. <3||Tessie Hintze||3/20/20||@tessiehintze - Venmo||Katie Cannon, $5|
|I'm a queer roaster working at Yellow Brick Coffee in Tucson. Our shop is still open and we are still roasting, but my hours have been cut due to a decrease in wholesale and retail orders. I work for an hourly wage that does not regularly include tips, so I depend on meeting a certain number of hours a week to afford my rent, bills, food, etc. Any help is appreciated! The Arizona coffee community is such an incredible and supportive group and I am so thankful that we all have each other to lean on during this time. Thank you! :)||Zoe Zibolsky||3/20/20|

|I work for Press Coffee and they have been a true blessing in my life. Press is staying open, but they are shortening the hours of my store and that is leaving me a little short on cash. I am in a one income house hold right now and we are piniching every penny we can. I love this coffee community so much, you guys are the best and the most supportive. I will give what I can to those in need too.||Spencer McCurdy||3/20/2020||spencer-mccurdy-3|
|I have been a barista and assistant manager/supervisor at Cartel Coffee Lab in Tucson for 3 years. The past few days have been a whirlwind of myself and most of the staff being laid off indefinitely because of what many smaller businesses are facing right now. This has been my full time job and only income for 3 years. If I have made you coffee in the past 3 years, or brought a smile to you, please consider giving what you can. Be well out there||Sara Levine||3/20/2020||northnode- Venmo||Noemí - $5||3/21/20|
|Hello! I am a barista at FUTURO coffee in downtown Phoenix. I've worked at FUTURO for over a year now all while finishing school and my internship. During this time, FUTURO has closed its doors due to COVID-19. As an individual who struggles with sever anxiety and depression, this has largely affected me. Because I have no savings, I am currently on my own. I appreciate the coffee community and all it has to offer, if you cannot donate, a kind message suffices! Thank you so much.||Selene Hinojosa||03/20/2020||Selene-Hinojosa (Venmo)||Alex kenzler- $5|

|Hi coffee community! My name is Alex and I've been working in coffee for 3 years. Currently at Mythical coffee, I'm starting to see a decline in business and we aren't sure what's going to happen next- like the rest of us. I am so grateful to have the best team over at mythical, we just need a little extra help with our store hours getting cut shorter. Anything you give to me I will also give to my team! Thanks for all the love. Stay healthy and safe!||Alex kenzler||03/21||Venmo: @Alexkenzler // cash app: $AlexKenzler|
|My name is Karlie and I just relocated to Arizona from Colorado. I work for Roots Coffee Bar and Juicery in Chandler. We are a new company, we just had our grand opening two weeks ago on Monday... what a perfect time for a grand opening, huh? Business has been extremely slow as you can imagine- one, because we are still getting the word out on the new place, and two, because of the pandemic going on. This week I was supposed to start my full time hours but my hours are now being cut down close to zero this upcoming week. I moved here to get on my feet, and I am struggling!! This is a huge blessing, and anything helps. I will do what I can as well to pay it forward. Thank you so much!!||Karlie Gardner||03/21/2020||Venmo @kagardner22 CashApp $kagardner22||Sebastian Ramirez $5||3/22/20|
|My name is Kayla and I work for Elevate Coffee Co in north Phoenix. I have been a barista for almost 3 years and working there for over a year, and though the owner has been able to keep us opened, hours have been cut immensely. Much of the money I make is in tips so since business has slowed a ton and my hours have been cut, I am making much less than I need to be to pay my bills. I have watched many other coffee shops and businesses close their doors and I am afraid that we will be forced to do the same soon.. I am a full time student and normally a full time barista. I also just recently bought my own home, so I would really just appreciate any help. I am so thankfull for this and so happy to see that people have donated to others in this tough time. Thank you all!||Kayla Slepack||3/22/2020||Venmo: @slepack||Alyx Alcala $5||3/24/20|
