Recently the government has passed a stimulus bill that should help a bit which is a relief! Also, it appears that our staff may finally be able to apply for unemployment which was not the case prior to late March. The government assistance should help, but sadly it won't be enough to sustain another 3 - 6 weeks we are most likely looking at.
The uncertainty for everyone is daunting . Add the financial aspect to it and it is overwhelming. We are asking for help if you can. To keep the staff on their toes a bit with their rent, utility bills and daily necessities.
This is NOT for ReMarked Salon and its needs.
ONLY for the individuals that work in its walls.
It's a huge 'ask'...something we never would have imagined we would need to do OR want to do.
But here we are asking for a little help for the team.
NOW..all this being said. We want to give back too!
As a team, we have decided that 10% of your generosity will be paid forward to a Chicago non-profit organization, Sarah's Circle. Sarah's Circle is a non-profit organization with a mission of serving women who are homeless or in need of a safe space. Located in Chicago's Uptown Community, Sarah's Circle has provided support for thousands of women since 1979.
We are grateful for you all. We have the most amazing guests/friends that a small business could ask for. We want everyone to be safe and healthy and kind during this time. Look after each other, especially our older friends. And we will come out of this stronger and more resilient than ever before.
Thank you all,
Mark, Jason, Marcella, Jaas, Holly and Ricki
oh...and Roxy and Rylee too :) :)
