Employee Assistance for Dogwood Tavern

Help us help our team!

As you likely know by now, we had to temporarily close our doors last week to help keep the Dogwood Tavern team and patrons as safe as possible in light of the COVID-19 health crisis.

This was a particularly tough decision to make as we thought about our hourly (both in the Front and Back of the House) team members who rely on their paychecks and tips to live. At Dogwood Tavern, our staff IS our family. We work hard and we play hard. Our team has also helped the community celebrate as we gathered at Dogwood to witness championships by the Caps and the Nats. We’ve also been home to many birthday celebrations, happy hours, outdoor patio parties, visits from Santa, and other special events that you and your friends and families have enjoyed with our team.

Now we’re trying to be there for our staff, as much as possible, in these most difficult times as well.

Many of you have asked us how you can help. Please consider contributing to this GoFundMe account for Dogwood Tavern. All funds raised here will be distributed directly to our hourly employees – fairly and equally – based on full- and part-time employee status.
Please help as much as you can so all of these team members can be there to join us when the time comes for us to open our doors again.
We appreciate any donation, big or small, and thank you for your support during this challenging time.
