Harassed Restaurant Help

$2,275 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 74 people in 19 months
A wonderful family has been serving delicious Indian food in downtown Visalia for a short time since they took over Cafe India at 211 Main St.

Well, in the past few weeks their windows have been smashed in four times. No other businesses in the area have been affected, and the vandalism is being investigated as why one family and business is being targeted. I can make my guess and I am sure you can as well, and I am not okay with it. I want to show support to our neighbors and show them that the community cares about everyone. I think it is even more important in these times, lets show our love, not just speak or write about it.

The windows being smashed are about $1,000 each to replace, and having been in the industry long enough, they usually are not covered or worth the insurance claim. So things like this just come out of the pocket of the restaurant owner.

If you'd to support in any way please do, through here, drop some cash off to me, I want to present it as a surprise to them. And please support them by dining there, trust me, its delicious. 

With all my love for people and this wonderful community.

So... the news somehow heard about this and did a story on it, so maybe some more support? I'll probably keep it running for another week to see what we can raise! Support, share and most importantly, go eat some delicious food from the sweetest family!!

One window will be paid for, let's go for two!! Maybe cover all four that were broken? So amazing! I'll be withdrawing what we have raised so far and delivering it to Cafe India as soon as it clears. So thankful for all of you wonderful people.

I'm so sorry you're dealing with this. My mother grew up in Visalia in the 1940s. Next time in Visalia, I plan on eating at your establishment...
