Please Help Old Fashion Donuts fix Damages

Old Fashioned Donuts is a 48 year old black owned and operated business located in the Roseland neighborhood of Chicago, IL. On Sunday, May 31st our establishment was VANDALIZED despite our efforts to protect it from looters. In a community where just about everything was broken into a destroyed, we are one of the only restaurants still standing. Please donate to help fix our broken storefront so that we can reopen and feed the people in our community. About the beneficiary: Buritt Bulloch is 81 years old and moved to Chicago from Mississippi with dreams to create his own business with his now deceased wife Mamie Bulloch. Mr. Bulloch opened the Donut Shop back in 1972 and we’ve been a staple to the south side of chicago ever since. About the campaign organizer(s): Leda Edwards and Drejauna Bulloch are the granddaughters of Mr. Bulloch. We wanted to create this campaign to help our grandfather fix his broken storefront window. The plan: All donations will go into a business savings account with permission from the beneficiary. Since our goal was met, we will use the rest of the money to fix up with shop: new A/C unit, new frier, new flooring, new grill... etc.
