Help Save Skol

I am currently an employee of SKOL Liquors, I have been there 17 1/2 years. This is home, my fellow employees, past and present are family. Skol Liquors is a small neighborhood icon, to say the least. It has been that way for 40+ years.
Like other small businesses, Skol has had its struggles, but they have always bounced back. But with Covid-19, 2 back to back break-ins and now the horrendous looting because of the riots caused by the murder of George Floyd(as I write this day 4 of being broken into), bouncing back may not be an option.
When I arrived yesterday(05/29) at Skol to help, the inside looked like a war zone. Broken bottles, smashed cooler doors, smashed glass, shelves pushed over, broken neon signs, stolen merchandise, burnt counters etc...I saw the lost look on the owners face and my heart hurt. This store is his life.
The purpose of this fund-raiser is to help save his life, To help Skol rebuild from the ashes and continue to be an icon of Seward Neighborhood.
100% of the donations will be given to the owners of Skol Liquors.  Any donation you can give is most greatly appreciated.
Please show your support and join me in my quest to keep Skols doors open. I will post pictures as I receive them from the various who I know took some.
Thank you.
