Happy Fourth of July!
As we celebrate Independence Day, we are reminded of the precious freedoms we enjoy. We are thankful to have the freedom to stand up to the racial injustice that still exists in this country and demand change. Now is the time to overcome differences and work together for a better.
Thanks to your referrals…
We've donated $150 to Southern Smoke Foundation! Southern Smoke is a crisis relief organization for people in the food and beverage industry. Southern Smoke has set up the Austin Relief Fund to support workers affected by closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Restaurants, bars, and their employees are able to apply for assistance. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, the Southern Smoke Emergency Relief Fund has distributed $2,648,405 to 1,359 people. For more information about Southern Smoke and how to get involved, visit www.southernsmoke.org.
For each referral we receive we will donate to the charity of the quarter, which is Central Texas Food Bank (CTFB) for July through September. CTFB is the largest hunger-relief charity in Central Texas, and the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically increased the need for CTFB’s services. From January to May, CTFB had a 220 percent increase of first-time households turning to the Food Bank. CTFB has been serving more than 90,000 individuals each week. For every referral we receive this quarter, we will donate $10 to Central Texas Food Bank. In addition to the donation, for each referral, you will be entered into our annual $100 gift card drawing, and if your referral becomes a client, you’ll receive a $25 gift card!
