Support The Wakery Staff During Fire Closure

Donation protected
Seeking your help to pay our staff.

The Wakery is still without power after the devastating fire on Adams street on Wednesday, June 19. We sustained smoke damage and lost much of our inventory in cold storage.

Because we will not be able to open for several days, we will not have the income to pay our employees -- employees who depend on their wages and tips to pay their bills and support their lives.

The goal amount is what we would need to pay for all of the scheduled shifts from 6/19 through 6/23.

We may not be able to open, but we don't want our employees to go without.
Thank you for your generosity.
