Thousands of bartenders who are still out of work are getting some much needed help.

Thanks to money from alcohol supplies and individual donors, the United States Bartenders' Guild created the Bartender Emergency Assistance Program COVID-19 Relief Campaign.

It was able to give out more than $9M to more than 30,000 bartenders across the country but the funds recently ran out.

Now the guild says it can still help those in the industry in need through other grant programs they have to offer.
