Mel’s Market has been an institution in Downtown Seattle since 1988, serving up fresh, fast & delicious meals to the community. We want to be able to continue serving our community for years to come. So a GoFundMe campaign has been launched to help the Mel’s family through this challenging time.
The COVID-19 outbreak has caused us to temporarily close our business and put most of our employees out of work. We need help to provide a consistent paycheck to our crew to supplement their unemployment. In addition, we will need working capital to safely re-open.
Our limited operations have been essential to keeping our community fed in some local hospitals, small grocery stores & drug stores. We’ve been able to send many donations of food items to Northwest Harvest in the past couple of weeks, but now it’s our turn to ask for help. Although many organizations are advertising help for small business, we aren’t “small” enough to qualify for much of this help. While we await results of our SBA disaster loan application, we need to do our part and secure funding from all sources.
Our landlord, vendors and guests have been so amazing and supportive during this crisis…and for that we are so thankful. If you are able to help, we would be so incredibly grateful.
Help us accomplish our goal by donating any small amount you or your company is able to.
