We've only just begun
to inspire self-sustainability
in our community
THE ELEPHANT INITIATIVE
Elephants are one of the most majestic and loyal creatures in the animal kingdom. With this initiative, we want to support and honor workers who are out of a job, especially independent contractors and sole proprietors that don't qualify for state unemployment benefits as they may be struggling during this time. We constantly rely on them to make us "look good" in every day life - from the hairdressers and nail technicians to event staff (including florists, caterers, wedding planners, and tent installers) and more. We want to provide assistance to the behind the scenes teams are often left behind yet are truly essential in our lives.
ORPHEUS SOUPER BOWL
Participating in conjunction with Babs Midtown, The Tzedakah Project helped raise funds for the Atlanta Community Food Bank during the Orpheus Brewery "Souper" Bowl this year. There was a great turnout and support from the neighborhood and a great way to connect with other fellow restaurateurs.
BABS ON BIKES
In an effort to serve an ever-changing community, "Babs on Bikes" was the first initiative created by The Tzedakah Project. It was designed to assist multiple needs including employing students/medical residents that had classes and rotations cut short as well as providing healthy, sustainable food to local neighbors who are unable to leave their residence. The program also provides in-kind meals for healthcare workers, the elderly and those as risk for or suffering from COVID-19. As "payment," the students receive complimentary meals for themselves as well as any tips earned from deliveries.
The program is truly representative of values of The Tzedakah Project as it provides a way for the delivery team to support themselves as well as by giving back and helping out the local community.
