Ugly Mug Staff Assistance

Hi all! My names is Melissa Groves and my husband and I own The Ugly Mug Bar & Grill. I am organizing this campaign to assist our staff.

As most of you know, we are a small, locally owned business. We have roughly 15 people who rely on trying heir job to support themselves. Today our livelihood was taken away due to the coronovirus pandemic and being forced to close our doors. . We fully intend to come back stronger than ever. If are able, please consider donating to ease their financial burden.  I understand that we all are suffering so no pressure. 

We will continue to receive donations and all donations will be dispersed to employees based on their current employment appointment (Full-time, part-time, occasional, etc.).  The funds will be used by the employees to pay bills, buy groceries, etc.

We will begin dispersing funds starting this Friday 3/27/20 via check from our business account.

The owners of The Ugly Mug will not receive any of these donations.  This is for our kitchen and bartending staff only.

Thank you in advance for your consideration!
