Nightshade Employee Relief Fund

Donation protected
Dear Family & Friends, 

We made the difficult decision to temporarily close our restaurant in response to the global health crisis surrounding the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). Our commitment to employee and guest safety meant that we could no longer open our dining room to the community.

Many of you have asked how you can help our employees directly. 100% of the donations made here will go to our employees who are no longer able to earn a living because of this forced closure.

Most, if not all, of our hourly and tipped employees live pay check to pay check--this is a terrifying time for the hospitality industry and our staff.  Without dine-in business, we had to temporarily lay off the majority of our team with much heartbreak.  Thus, we are calling on our family and friends for help.  All of this fund will go directly to the temporarily laid off team members to assist them in this time of need.  Please support them so that they can subsist until it is safe and legal to open our doors again for dine in business.  We thank you for all your kindness and generosity during this time.

With Gratitude, 

Mei Lin & Nightshade Team
