Dearest Friends, Neighbors and Customers,
I know you have been bombarded with requests to help. We are making an urgent plea to help us continue our mission of bringing our city the best gelato - all of your contributions will benefit the employees (who will continue getting paid) and our vendors (we need to keep our lights on). This is our #SmallBusinessRelief campaign on GoFundMe with hopes that we can be still be here when all of this is over..
The last eight years I have incessantly been obsessing over one thing and one thing only – creating frozen dessert recipes from my heart to share with my city. Gelateria Uli is the product of this drive against all odds. I am eternally grateful to all of you for supporting my business. In addition to making gelato, this business has also become a sanctuary of sorts for employees passing through my doors on their way to bigger and better things. I am constantly humbled by the incredible people who have chosen to work at Gelateria Uli. So the last two weeks, I have made it my duty to be funny and light for the sake of employees' anxiety about the future. But I also feel responsible for the livelihood of the incredible people who make this place what it is - 12 hard-working, beautiful and kind employees. While the world is going into a shutdown mode, I want to keep my gelato family safe and taken care of. Your pledges will translate into delicious, award-winning gelato at your fingertips. At the same time, we will keep our people employed and our little industrious production facility going.
We are taking extra precautions at our stores. Today (3/17), like every single other day, we have spent at least 4 hours disinfecting every corner of the store. We haven’t stopped our production either as our incredible product has a very long freezer shelf life. We want to have enough inventory until the city/state/country forces us into a lockdown.
This campaign will accomplish two very important goals – in times like this, you need something to make you happy, a.k.a. our gelati and sorbet. And we need to keep our employees paid and our lights on - otherwise we won't be here when this blows over. Let’s keep our gelato community going. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP. We love you very very much!
