American Sardine Bar Employee Relief Fund

As you’re all well-aware, COVID-19 has had catastrophic effects on our country and the world. No workforce has escaped unscathed, but the service industry has been hit especially hard. We at American Sardine Bar were devastated to have to close our doors to the community we love and appreciate so much. Unfortunately, this closure means our entire staff is out of work until further notice.

Many of us at ASB rely solely on the tips we receive by pouring you a beer, or bringing you your favorite sandwich and onion rings. Since the future is uncertain, we ask, if you are able to, to make a donation so our staff might find some financial relief in all of this. Your donation will directly support all tipped staff, with a donation made to our back-of-the-house employees who are also experiencing financial instability in these difficult times.

We care about our customers so much, and are incredibly grateful for all the support we’ve received from you so far. Thank you so much for being there for us. We can’t wait to drink a beer and a shot with you when this is all over.
