WHAT IS THIS ABOUT?
The Mission To Help Our Local Businesses
Since March 16th, restaurants, bars, and gyms have been closed or restricted to takeout services only due to health concerns over COVID-19. The restaurant industry has been extremely hard hit by this, forcing some restaurants to lay off workers or even shut down operations completely.
For some owners, these businesses represent their entire life's work. It was their American dream to open a restaurant, and they have poured their life savings and countless hours into developing these establishments into welcoming places beloved by the whole community, where people can come together to celebrate special occasions or just enjoy a nice meal out!
The first round of SBA PPP loans has already run dry, and the prospect of further economic aid from the state and federal governments is uncertain. These restaurant owners and the staff they employ are our friends, neighbors, and family!
Our goal is to rally the Duvall, WA community to provide a helping hand to our community members when they need it most--because when one group of the community is affected, we are all affected. Nobody knows when or if any aid from proposed economic relief plans will actually reach Duvall businesses, but the incredible generosity of any individuals who are able to help in the meantime would be enormously appreciated.
And the silver lining to this crisis situation is that I know we will emerge stronger than ever as a community when this is all over!
