Giavos Family Restaurants Employee Relief Fund

As members of the food and beverage community, we have been heavily impacted by the spread of COVID-19. We tried our best to stay open in the earlier stages of the crisis, but as the situation got worse, we began to close our dining rooms. We're trying to support and employ our staff in any way we can, including providing take out from one location with limited hours, however many of our employees are navigating this unprecedented situation with no end in sight.

We have received an unbelievable amount of support and requests from our customers and the community at large- they're asking how they can help/donate, they're leaving extra gratuity on takeout orders, sharing links to gift cards on social media, and even asking for Venmo accounts to send money to employees.

So that's why we've created this fund, to keep all of these requests in one place and share it amongst the people who we can’t do this without. On top of what we're doing internally to make this better for our collective restaurant family, 100% of these donations will go to our staff. We are so grateful for your support, and your patronage means the world to us our family of restaurants. We will get through this together.

Thank you so much for your generosity.
