ECC Sheridan Barista Relief Fund

Donation protected

As you know, we made the difficult decision to close Emerald City Coffee's Sheridan location. The uncertainty of the pandemic and other financial stressors were too much to bear and we're devastated to see ECC Sheridan go, but it's the tough choice we had to make.

The outpour of support shown through our initial fundraiser absolutely blew us away! We cannot thank the community and customers enough for their generosity, well wishes, and kindness throughout this past week and the last 7 months.

The purpose of this fundraiser is to help cushion the blow that our ECC Sheridan staff will experience in the coming days. These amazing people have worked their tails off during this pandemic to keep us going. All donations here will go directly to the affected baristas.

We truly can't say this enough: THANK YOU. For keeping our little shop going, for treating us with humility and kindness, for trying to support us in this final hour.

Finally, we hope you'll continue to visit our Wilson cafe. It's business as usual up there and we'd love to see you there or via Grubhub :)
