The city of Rockford, MI experienced a huge community loss when the iconic Corner Bar burnt down on August 14th. The restaurant has been a staple in Rockford since 1935, and was housed in the downtown's oldest brick building, constructed in 1873. Our immediate thoughts are with the members of our community who lost their jobs today. We spent the afternoon working with the police department and concerned citizens to organize a fundraiser. For many of the staff, unemployment may not be available because they were working as tipped or part-time employees. We are coordinating with other local businesses to provide some financial relief for these families. The manager is providing us with a count of staff members and we are using the funds raised to purchase Meijer gift cards for them. We think that this is the best way to provide for immediate needs of groceries and gas. As many of us know, working in tipped positions you sometimes live shift to shift working for cash and this is devastating to some employees. All of the profits from this tee shirt will be donated toward the gift card fund and provide relief for the families affected.
