Caper Staff Fund

Thank you first and foremost for your attention. With the outbreak of COVID-19 the hospitality industry collapsed overnight. Restaurants, bars, cafes and hotels make up 48 percent of small businesses in this country and employ over 15 million people. In the past week, over half of those 15 million people have been laid off due to closures. There will be a tremendous need to fund our staffs in any way we can and for staff to feed their family during this uncertain time. 

The Perfect Caper is asking for your help. We have 35 employees that need assistance and we have stated this gofundme with them in mind. Many in our community have become very familiar with our staff over the 20 years we have been in the community.  Many of our team members have been with us 10 years or longer and we consider them our family. If you have been dining at The Caper over this period of time, perhaps you have become close enough to some of our team members to consider 'like family' as well. 

Whatever you are able to provide through this donation, the funds will go directly to our team members to assist them with the immediate needs to get through this period.

We are as well doing what we can to provide for our staff with continuing to provide 'food support' as well as getting them in the right direction for any agency support that is available. YOUR contributions will go a long way and the entire team is grateful for anything you can do to help.

Thank you and please continue to be safe!

Jeanie and James
