Lifted Up: Community rallies to support Ernest Frost Paylor

Broadway Black community, we are calling on all of you to lift up our brother in need. Ernest Frost Paylor has been working security at the stage door of the Broadhurst Theater for many years. He has been there through Broadway runs of Anastasia, Freestyle Love Supreme and most recently, Jagged Little Pill. As if the Broadway shut down wasn’t enough to deal with, Ernie’s medical emergency in November, resulted in the amputation of his foot and part of his leg.

Please donate and/or share with your communities. Let’s take care of each other. 

(At this time they have already reached their goal, but we know that in this pandemic, the more support the better.)
