George Howell Coffee Barista Relief Fund

We at George Howell Coffee are doing our best to keep churning out online orders thanks to our dedicated customers and roasting operation in Acton, MA.  Unfortunately in these unprecedented times, we've had to temporarily close our café doors for the safety of our staff and community. As a result, we furloughed many of our passionate employees until April 7thor until it's safe to reopen. 
We are receiving messages daily from regulars asking about the well-being of our staff and how they can help.  With dozens of employees in need of financial assistance, we hope that you'll consider donating what you can to help keep them afloat until federal government assistance kicks in. 100% of proceeds will go straight to the cashiers that greet you every morning and hand you a pastry and coffee, the baristas preparing your cappuccinos, and everyone else involved in keeping our cafés the amazing, welcoming spaces they are. 
We hope to be back at it soon, setting up educational demos and making pour overs for you and your loved ones. Like everyone else in the service industry, we are excited to bring a renewed sense of pride and passion into our work when this craziness ends. We need your help now to ensure we can do that.
Thank you so much for thinking about us and donating during this difficult period. We can’t wait to see you again.
-Your George Howell Coffee team
