The Wydown Employee Relief Fund

Dear Friends of The Wydown,

By now everyone is aware the DC restaurant industry has been devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic. We made the tough decision to temporarily operate with only 15% of our staff. We're doing everything we can think of to offer support to our employees with the limited resources we have available. We know it’s a tough time for everyone… But for those that feel comfortable and able we humbly ask if you might contribute what you would for a latte, pastry, whatever you can, to help give our staff a little peace of mind while they deal with this unimaginable uncertainty. 100% of the funds will go directly to our employees. If you've ever enjoyed a cozy corner, a friendly chat, a perfect cup of coffee, or a delicious scone, please consider donating to the people who've made that possible.

Thank you for your support now and always!

- The Wydown team
