We identified 101 Restaurants in Poway were closed for a week or longer due to the water crisis, leaving 985 workers without a paycheck, including servers, cooks, dishwashers, busers and hosts. These are fathers, mothers, neighbors and students who in many cases earn minimum wage and tips, and live paycheck to paycheck.
Special thanks to the Poway Historical Society for helping us, They raised $178 during Christmas in the Park.
We also would like to thank all of our volunteers. AVID STUDENTS from Poway High thank you for your community service.
California Coast Credit Union in Poway has been our banking support and so very helpful.
Our last distribution will be on Monday December 30 at the Poway Library . We have over 100 workers hoping to get funded.
Promise, 100% of all donations go to these workers. Note(Go Fund Me does take out their fees which is 2.9%).
This effort is being organized by Phil Factor, a retired teacher, counselor and football coach from the Poway Unified School District.
