Bootstrap Coffee Roasters Employee Relief Fund

Bootstrap Coffee Roasters is a coffee roasting company with its roastery and coffee bar located on the West Side of Saint Paul, Minnesota.  Founded in 2014, Bootstrap is committed to providing delicious, seasonal coffees and connections that foster community.

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the company has had to make the incredibly hard decision to furlough 6 members of its amazing staff. These individuals make the Bootstrap community better every day through their passion for serving others and their unceasing pursuit of great coffee. Now, we'd like to support them during this incredibly challenging time.

We have set a goal of $20,000 for our staff to put towards their living expenses while they are out of work. We will split the funds equally among the affected staff.  And we continue to search for other ways to support our staff during this time.

As we navigate this crisis, the needs of our team are at the forefront of our thoughts and efforts. We appreciate any support you can give!
