We have great restaurants! It's true! We are all aware of two key facts - 1) Our restaurants are a big reason our communities thrive. 2) COVID-19 is having a terrible impact on these businesses.
This is your chance to give back to those that contribute so much to our community. Our goal is to have all of our restaurants survive during these difficult times; we do not want to see any "closed doors" when the dust settles. Our community is wonderful and we want to help such valuable members get through this vulnerable time.
Funds raised will be distributed by Neighborly Way, a local non-profit, to restaurants and their workers in two ways. First, restaurant staff who are out of work and who need help to make end's will be able to receive help paying for their living expenses. Second, Neighborly Way will also use the funds to help local restaurants help drive business to the restaurants by helping to pay for orders that come in.
How does this work? Out-of-work staffers will be able eligible for a gift from Neighborly Way in order to make sure they can feed their families and stay in their homes during this difficult time. Neighborly Way will also be working with the restaurant owners to create special offferings for the community when they order. Think of the a "Free Appetizer" promotion, only Nieghborly Way will be using the funds raised here to pay the restaurant for the appetizer. We believe this will encourage more people to order and also help out the restaurants themselves.
During these difficult times, we need to pull together. If you have something to give, please consider giving back to members of the community who have always been there to give to our schools, youth sports organizations, and the overall health of our communities.
