Today is a new kind of reality - one we never imagined possible. Travel bans, social distancing, and city mandates have made our businesses unable to support our employees. They're the reason that Bunkhouse is great. They're the people who remembered your anniversary and left champagne in your room. They're the people that know your dog’s name and welcome him at check-in. They're the ones that can recite your coffee order by memory. They're the heart of this house.
Today we need you. The community we've built over the last twenty years. This fund, seeded by the leadership team at Bunkhouse - which includes owners, investors, and friends, is for the benefit of team members who have lost their shifts or jobs due to the effect of the Coronavirus on our industry. We've also created a special retail collection for the Bunkhouse employee relief fund. 100% of the profits of those items will benefit the employee relief fund.
The intention is that this money will help those affected most and who are struggling to maintain basic human needs including health insurance, groceries, medicine, diapers and shelter. Thank you for thinking of our people during these wild times. Know that we're thinking of you, our community, and are counting down the days until we're together again.
Alicia Carr, Bunkhouse Vice President of Hotel Accounting, will withdraw the funds and distribute to Bunkhouse Employees in need.
