Flatiron Fundraising Efforts You Can Support

Restaurants, bars, and fast-casual dining establishments make up 44.3% of Flatiron's ground-floor business composition. Respectively, 35% of ground-floor businesses are in other services. These sectors are significantly impacted by the unfolding COVID-19 outbreak as operating hours become adjusted, workers are laid off, and some business doors close altogether. 

Below is a list of Flatiron-based businesses organizing fundraising efforts to support their staff and keep their businesses afloat during this difficult time. You can donate or purchase gift cards if you are in a position to do so.
