Local Businesses Develop Charleston Hospitality Relief Fund

Press Release

As the Lowcountry continues to feel the effects of the COVID-19 virus, the hospitality industry was instructed to temporarily close their doors or follow the restrictions put in place, altering their normalcy. Southern Eagle Distributing, Michelob Ultra, Louie’s Kids and The MatchingFund have developed a fund in support of the Holy City’s hospitality staff. Together, the initial amount of $35,000, has been pledged and will be matched dollar-for-dollar in a matching gift challenge.

Hospitality workers, of all levels and roles, can apply for a gift card in the amount of $50 to use at their preferred grocery store. This level of support will allow each hospitality worker one week of groceries.

To apply for a grocery store gift card, go to https://donate2it.com/southern-eagle-distributing-hospitality-workers-fund/ and fill out the application. Verified staff will receive an electronic gift card, via e-mail, to their preferred grocery store in the amount of $50. We encourage shopping for healthy food in this time when we’re all trying to maintain our health and well-being.

To join the Southern Eagle Giving Challenge contact Steve Dudash, Chairperson and Executive Director, by email at [email protected].

Southern Eagle Distributing is a family owned business, serving 59 counties in SC and GA, for over 100 years.

Founded in 2001, Louie’s Kids, has been a leader in the fight of childhood obesity by educating families on group and individual wellness.

The MatchingFund, based in Charleston, is a resource that supports matching gift efforts in hopes to makes donations go further.
