Community Resource for COVID-19

Ogden Downtown Alliance has been privileged to disburse over $30,000 directly to service industry workers. The Support Ogden Dining Fund was created to aid those baristas, bartenders and servers that relied heavily on tips for their income.

This would not have been possible without the generous support of Ogden’s Own Five Wives Vodka, the Willard L. Eccles Foundation, the Stephen G. and Susan E. Denkers Family Foundation and contributions from local residents.

Thank you for your generosity. The Support Ogden Dining Fund is yet another reminder of what a strong and incredible community Ogden is.

Some local businesses allow you to support them with the purchase of gift cards. This will allow for some much needed cash flow to continue to pay employees while we wait for the COVID-19 pandemic to slow.

The trails are remaining open and are a great way to get out of the house without a large social gathering.
