Help Griddle Me This

Hi, my name is Channing Smith of Encompass Real Estate Group and we are raising money for Elizabeth Georges & Matthew Georges. They own and run Griddle Me This, an absolutely amazing food vendor, local vendor, and small business and catering service in the local area of Iowa City. Liz is a member of our team and an amazing member of the community.

Recently over the weekend, they had their catering trailer stolen with all of the business equipment and tools in it. They were about to head to a catering event that same morning only to come out to their trailer missing. They are working with local businesses to review footage and the local Police to try and figure out what happened and what actions they might be able to take. They had an agreement with a local business near their house to store the trailer outside with security and lock however, this did not deter or prevent the theft. Unfortunately, the local business doesn't share responsibility nor does their homeowners' insurance since it wasn't on their property. They are currently looking into their business insurance policy but are unsure what recourse that insurance provides. This is immediately impacting their business and livelihood and they are currently doing everything they can to recover their stuff. However, there is a possibility it is long gone!

In the meantime, we are looking for donations to do our best to help them replace as much as they can to try and keep their business going, and provide excellent service in the community as well as amazing food!

If you are able to donate or spread the word about donating/helping find their stuff, anything you can do is greatly appreciated.
