Amaru Restaurant Employees

We are a small, family owned restaurant in the heart of Wicker Park, Chicago. As everyone is aware, the Coronavirus pandemic has been detrimental to restaurants and restaurant employees. We have taken the necessary steps to help our kitchen employees continue to have some income however, we are looking at different ways to help our Front of the House employees make ends meet during this uncertain time. Employees whose earnings depend on tips (your Servers, Bussers, Runners and Bartenders) have been laid off due to the mandatory closure of dine-in service, are no longer able to make a living, and are experiencing financial hardships.  On behalf of our employees, we are asking Amaru’s friends, fans, and supporters to donate to this relief fund to help them weather this financial storm.  100% of donations go to our dedicated FOH staff in need. Your contributions are greatly appreciated and we are forever thankful for everything you have done for Amaru before and after the Coronavirus has impacted our lives. Thank you in advance for all your support. We are looking forward to coming out stronger from this life-changing experience and continuing to serve our community. Yours truly, Amaru family!
