Martines Riverhouse Restaurant Employee Relief

Dear Guests and Friends, 

On March 15th, 2020, the governor of Pennsylvania mandated closures of all restaurants in response to the global health crisis surrounding the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19).

Martines has been a staple of New Hope for close to 40 years and is considered an institution of the community.  Over the years we have perservered  through many twists and turns including various floods but are now faced with weathering a different type of storm.

As we brainstorm new ideas to keep moving forward, we ask you to show support in solidarity as we all adapt to the changing climate together.

100% of the donations made here will go to our staff and employees who are no longer able to earn a living because of this forced closure to the public.

We ask that you consider making a donation to contribute. Every dollar counts no donation is too small - or simply sharing this post - could have a large impact on the livelihood of these employees. 

On behalf of all of us from Martines, we are grateful for your consideration and generosity and eagerly await the day we get to serve you once again.

With gratitude,
The Martines Restaurant Team #smallbusinessrelief
