In the Spring of 2020, the entertainment industry came to a screeching halt. This was particularly impactful in Central Florida, where theatres and theme park shows went dark affecting the livelihood of tens of thousands within the local arts community including performers, musicians, costumers, designers, characters, technicians, entertainment managers and more and their families.
Supporting HEARTS facilitates a weekly drive-up food distribution event for arts and entertainment professionals at the non-profit St. Luke’s United Methodist church. Each week hundreds of households are provided with produce, prepped meals, and bread goods depending on availability.
One prepped meal costs $3.50 and $14 can provide a meal for a family of four.
Supporting HEARTS has been a special part of my family's week since early on in the pandemic also providing encouragement through smiling faces, supportive messages on signs and a safe place to stay connected with friends. Thank you for helping me support artists in the Orlando area!
