Dockery's launches COVID-19 relief fund
Daniel Island eatery Dockery’s has launched the Dockery’s COVID-19 Relief Fund that will fund local groups dedicated to assisting families suffering from joblessness and hunger during the current pandemic.
The first beneficiary of the fund will be East Cooper Community Outreach (ECCO). They will receive a portion of every takeout and delivery sale made through Mother’s Day, including Dockery’s Mother’s Day brunch specials.
“Since March, Dockery’s has donated well over 500 meals to families in need. Our team at Dockery’s and many of our customers have asked if we can do more. Everyone really wants to build on this tremendous community generosity,” said general manager Chuck Isenberg in a statement. “There are a lot of families in need right now and without work. We want to make sure that everyone feels a sense of community support.”
ECCO, led by Stephanie Kelley, exists to provide safety net services to low income neighbors, while empowering them to create a better future for themselves, their families, and the communities.
“Funding from Dockery’s has been earmarked for our Basic Needs program,” said Kelley. “Dollars given will work in direct support of local families in need, providing fresh food and clothing to those hit by the coronavirus crisis.”
Other local agencies or groups that could benefit from the Dockery’s COVID-19 Relief Fund, or anyone interested in supporting the funding efforts, can receive more information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mother’s Day brunch ordering, as well as daily takeout and delivery options, including house-made beer and a wide selection of wines, can be found at DockerysDI.com/takeout.
