Local Businesses With An Employee Relief Fundraiser

All small local businesses are getting a hit from COVID-19 and the efforts to slow its spread. People have been left without jobs, but some local businesses have started to create fundraising links to help support their staff.

Check out all the businesses below and consider donating to a few to help them out. You can also further help them by purchasing a gift card, or ordering takeout / delivery!

I went through the GoFundMe website to find local businesses in Hudson County that had an employee relief fundraiser and the below are what I could find. If you are a business and want to be included in the list below, please email me at kimberleybuenoschonig@gmail.com.

I started this page as a relief for my extremely dedicated and hard working employees; many of which have been with the Saku family since the very beginning. My employees make their living solely off the tips they receive every night at the restaurant. Due to the impending virus spread; I was ultimately forced to make the difficult decision in closing the restaurant at this time. I do believe this will play a key role in preventing the virus from continuing to spread & keeping the community safe. However, very unfortunately in return all of my employees are now left without a job & pay as they are unable to work from home during this crisis. If you are able, I kindly ask you donate as little or much as you feel comfortable with at this time. All profits will go directly & equally to my staff. We understand this is a difficult time for all families and many people have also lost their jobs, we do not want anyone to extend beyond what they are currently capable of giving. We will get through this hard time together, as one community united. We all wholeheartedly love SAKU… from @theycallmeshmelanie shaking up your favorite cocktails & making sure you have a good time, to Eddie rolling your sushi behind the bar, the edginess of the dark room, to the romance of the light room and everything in-between…all this is made possible by my incredible staff, who constantly ensure the best dining experience each and every time you walk through our door. Thank you for taking the time to read my page & very much appreciate anything you are able to contribute to the cause. I am looking forward to welcoming you back into our Saku home again soon! Sincerely, Daniel Grey on our profile you can find the LINK taking you directly to donate

Thanks for your support for our tipped employees! LINK IN BIO! We work in the bar and restaurant service industry at SOUTH HOUSE in Jersey City. As you all know, the bar and restaurant had to close their doors due to a mandatory close ordered by the state of NJ and the City of Jersey City to contain the spread of the contagious Covid19 Virus. Most of the service staff makes their living on tipped wages to maintain their livelihood with basic essentials such as food and rent. For the past five years, we have become a strong knitted family and have always supported each other in all that we do, we are a team. We've started this Gofundme page to lead the charge in the hopes of garnering as much financial support in this time of great need. I know, that we as a community, are all in the same struggle, to make ends meet, but if you are able to donate, no matter how small, it would be greatly appreciated!! The funds donated will be evenly distributed amongst the tipped staff and will help in some capacity to keep a roof over their head and eat a warm healthy meal. There is a famous expression: When the going gets tough, the tough get going – meaning when the situation becomes difficult, the strong will work harder to meet the challenge. Let's come together and share a little, or a lot, to make sure that everyone who is in need gets through this challenging time in our country! We Got This – 100%! Let's Go! Our Goal is $50K….
