Donation Pages to Support Triangle Service Industry Workers

Hundreds of thousands of service industry workers have been negatively impacted by the Covid-19 global outbreak. Triangle Restaurants have pivoted towards takeout and curbside pickup to help alleviate the record-breaking drop in revenue. Despite efforts to adapt and alleviate the suffering of small-business and restaurant workers, it won’t be enough. Some Triangle restaurants are now launching donation pages. They are seeking love and support from their community to help their loyal employees and staff during this terrifying time. Here is a rolling list of donation pages you can contribute to help restaurant workers whose livelihoods are in danger.

If you are a local restaurant in the Triangle area that needs help spreading the word about your delivery and takeout offerings or donation pages, please email me. As I’m just one person with limited bandwidth, I’m prioritizing local restaurants vs. national chains.

In case you missed my previous posts, I also listed five ways you could support your favorite small businesses during this difficult time, and I posted a running list of restaurants open for takeout, delivery, and curbside. Please don’t forget these businesses. The restaurant scene of the Triangle is one of the reasons why this area is such a destination.
