Gayle Benson Community Assistance Fund
Greater New Orleans Foundation Service and Hospitality Family Assistance Program was made possible with leadership gifts from Mrs. Gayle Benson and the McIlhenny Company, maker of Tabasco® brand pepper sauce.
The Greater New Orleans Foundation (GNOF) launched the Louisiana Service and Hospitality Family Assistance Program, an initiative to support negatively impacted Louisiana service and hospitality workers who are supporting their dependent children and elderly parents and need help to continue meeting their basic needs during the coronavirus pandemic.
The program is the first initiative to launch with resources contributed by Mrs. Gayle Benson through the Gayle Benson Community Assistance Fund at GNOF. Five hundred thousand dollars from the Gayle Benson Community Assistance Fund and $100,000 in newly contributed money from McIlhenny Company, maker of Tabasco® Brand Pepper Sauce, will be the catalysts to kick this program off with an initial $600,000 in funding. This program is launched in partnership with the Louisiana Restaurant Association which will be promoting the initiative alongside its ongoing advocacy for the region’s restaurants and workers.
