Earlier this week, Gov. Tim Walz ordered the temporary closure of restaurants, bars and "places of public amusement." 

The order allows restaurants to remain open if they operate by offering takeout only.

Because of the order, fundraisers have been started for some businesses to help support their staff and keep the business afloat for the future. 

Below is a list of businesses/unemployed workers you can help support:

In addition to those businesses, Second Harvest Heartland has temporarily canceled its volunteer shifts but is still looking for volunteer forklift drivers to help them move to a new food distribution center on March 27 (7 a.m. to 11 a.m.) and March 28 (11 a.m. to 3 p.m.). Help is wanted at both the Maplewood and Brooklyn Park locations. You can volunteer here.

If you know of additional businesses, email us at web@kstp.com, and we'll add them to the list.
