Bryan Schroeder, GK Executive Director, says, “It’s an honor to stand alongside the citizens of Savannah in support of Old Pink House employees. Being a food service worker shouldn’t mean that you have to work without a safety net - stability is something we should all strive to provide to this deserving community.”
Giving Kitchen is offering disaster relief grants for those who need financial assistance due to job loss from the fire by applying at bit.ly/pinkhouseapply by January 31, 2019. Funds raised at participating events as well as restricted donations from the public will be equally distributed to Olde Pink House employees who apply by the deadline. GK will in turn match up to $100 of that amount for each applicant.
If you would like to contribute to GK’s Olde Pink House disaster relief fund, please give at bit.ly/give2pinkhouse. You may also mail a check (write “Pink House” on the memo line) to Giving Kitchen, Attn: Pink House Disaster Relief, 513 Edgewood Avenue, Suite 100, Atlanta GA, 30312. Donations made after January 31, 2019 will go to Giving Kitchen’s general fund to assist food service workers in the Savannah area.
If you would like to host a fundraiser to support Olde Pink House employees, please email Abbey Freund at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 404-254-1227.
While GK is here to support Olde Pink House employees affected by this unexpected emergency, their direct and matching grants are open to food service workers in Georgia who need financial assistance because of an illness, injury, disaster such as house fire or flood, or death of an immediate family member that has happened within the past 6 months. Please note that this is a separate application process where supporting documentation will be required to show that financial need has been caused by a qualifying crisis. To apply for a GK grant, start at bit.ly/apply2gk.
