How It Started
Every year, restaurant owners donate thousands of dollars in gift certificates and other items through auctions to help charitable organizations raise funds through auctions and raffles. Many step up to the plate during natural disasters and give selflessly of their time and resources. We've seen their amazing generosity time and time again.
In March 2020, when the Coronavirus shut restaurants down across the country, we saw anguished restaurateurs
struggle to keep their staff employed, while not being able to generate revenue. Many relied on grants, loans
and even crowd-funding to help them survive.
Some didn't make it.
It was then that we recognized that there was no long-term, ongoing financial assistance program in place especially for Restaurant Owners or their employees in times of crisis.
So we decided to do something about it. And the QuenchTime Restaurant Relief Foundation was born.
