This is my parents business. They have been in business for 35 years! My step father is 60 years old and the hardest working man I have ever met. He never takes a day off. He works over 75 hours a week. 4am until 4:00pm Monday through Friday. When covid hit he lost more than 40% of his business . He had to close early almost 2 hours everyday because there was no business. He has also been now closed on mondays and saturdays. They can’t afford to pay their taxes, they are behind on their mortgage and their bills. My step father still made donations to the local hospitals. He brought tons of food for free and also donated sandwiches to all the poll workers. He has the biggest heart of anyone I have ever met. He will give someone the shirt off his back even if it was his last one. He didn’t qualify for PPP because it’s a small family owned business. He would never ask for help even though he cried every day in the office barely having enough money to make payroll. He doesn’t take a pay and hasn’t in months because paying the 2 people is more important to him because they have kids and families to support. I’m begging you please help my family and my parents I can’t think of anyone more deserving in the world than my step dad and mom.
