This just in from reader Jessica:
A couple nonprofits I’m on the board of would love to help local restaurants. I figure you’re the guy to ask: do you know of any local restaurants that have been particularly hard hit by the fire/mudslides for which we could provide funds to host a buffet-style meal for evacuees and first responders? Just trying to do the most good!
Feel free to send a private email to email@example.com and I will forward it to Jessica.
