The St. Louis Blues Alumni and YouthBridge Community Foundation, in conjunction with the Law Firm of Doster, Ullom and Boyle, LLC, announced today the creation of the Blues Alumni Assistance Fund.
The fund will provide relief for local small businesses throughout the St. Louis community and the metropolitan area that have been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The initial goal of the fund is to raise $300,000, which will then be matched by an anonymous donor for a total of $600,000 in donatable funds.
The St. Louis Blues Alumni will donate $50,000 to kick off the campaign.
Beginning March 29, small businesses can apply for aid by submitting an application at stlbluesalumni.com. If approved, businesses may receive up to $15,000 in support from the fund.
