It has been a tough few weeks for Nashville, for the country, and for the world. Small businesses are struggling to stay afloat, people are trying to rebuild their homes, many Americans are losing their jobs, and we are all forced to stay in as we fight through this pandemic. Despite all this turmoil, beauty and kindness have remained.
We decided to flip the script and shine our spotlight, while we can, on some of the kindness that we have witnessed from others because Kindness Isn’t Canceled.
One of the supreme hospitality groups in New York City, IGC Hospitality has shown kindness through these tough times. In the spirit of hospitality and their four core values, (human, hospitable, hungry, and humble) IGC launched “Family Meal”, a relief program for the NYC restaurant community.
The program provides free meals to the employees who work in the industry and their families. This initiative not only provides meals for restaurant workers and their loved ones, but allows some employees to keep working, which in turn allows them to keep earning a much-needed paycheck through these uncertain times.
This selfless effort by IGC is one that is deserving of accolades. Friends, families, employees, and employers alike have all pitched in to donate to the cause. It costs just $6 to donate a meal. So far an astonishing, $23,519 has been raised by over 150 donors in just a few short days. The ultimate goal currently stands at $40,000.
We are so proud to be able to share IGC Hospitality’s story, and we hope it touched your heart, as it has ours. If you feel inclined to donate, you can do so here. If you are unable to contribute financially, we encourage you to share the link.
