Mimi's Rescue

Due to the extension of the "Stay Home, Stay Safe" directive, sadly, Mimi's is in need of donations.

     On March 16th, I elected to close Mimi’s entirely and opt-out  of offering carry-out.  With the knowledge from family and friends, in Europe and California, I thought it best to keep my employees, customers, and family safe.  Because of the uncertain future, I may not have the ability, without aid, to properly re-open and rehire my staff.  Mimi's did not qualify for any of the federal or local small-business funding.   Carrying this disappointment, I am setting a goal of $25,000 for any possible donations for my staff,  the product we will need to reopen and any outstanding utilities and rent.  
      In the meantime, to utilize what product we have left, I have been giving our best item, "The Best Fudging Brownie" as a "Best Fudging Thank You," to our nurses and doctors on the front lines, as well as the generous people handing out food for families in need.   Please feel free to leave a message and send me the names of your favorite local charities, we will be donating until our product runs out! 
     Thank you for all of your faithful support and for remaining members of our Mimi’s family!  Please be safe and stay healthy and we will undoubtedly see each other soon.

Thank you so much!
