Given that the government lockdown has obliterated trillions of dollars out of our economy, there just isn’t as much money for non-profits and charities.
Only this year, much of the food, stages, midways and taps of beer in plastic cups are being added to the growing list of lost opportunities as community festivals and other special events are scrubbed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Dozens more are in jeopardy, due to social distancing guidelines.
The losses bring not only disappointment, and more boredom, for a sequestered state. They also mean less money for the nonprofits that rely on the spring and summer staples for large chunks of their yearly budgets.
