Lee's Deli Team Support Fund

Dear Friends and Family,

It has been an incredible pleasure and privilege to serve you, our friends and family, our neighbors and visitors for these past 30 years. When I started Lee's Deli in 1993, I was in my 20s with a dream of serving the West Philadelphia community with the freshest, healthiest, and tastiest cheesesteaks and carrot cakes. In fact, some of the school children we used to serve are now teachers. Some of the teenagers we used to serve are now men and women serving our country and community in the Military. Some of the parents we used to serve are now grandparents with grandchildren. With your love and support, we have been fortunate to be a part of your lives and overcome all challenges, and we hope to continue to be able to be a part of your lives for the next 30 years. However, today, we are faced with a challenge greater than any challenge we've ever faced before.

Since our limited reopening in April, we have already received so much support and encouragement from all of you--and we are grateful beyond words. In light of this, I hesitate to post this plea as it did not seem sensible, but, the truth is, these are not sensible times. I ask on behalf of our staff and their families, as we are in need of your help now more than ever before.

If you have the ability to donate, 100% of every dollar raised through our GoFundMe will be used to directly support our employees and their families during this difficult time.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your love and generosity. We wish you and your loved ones well, and we're excited to see you all again soon.

With love and care,
Scott and Lee's Deli Since 1993
