Hello all. First may I say thank you for donating and taking the time to read this in advance, and I hope all is well in this time of uncertainty. My name is Johnny and I am the owner of Johnny’s Shoe & Leather repair, it is a family owned business and while it’s hard for me to ask for help, under these circumstances I have no choice.
I am seeking your help and donations to help my business stay afloat, I had to close my doors before I was even able to open them; because of all the craziness going on. Before all this happened; I decided to move my little family ran business to a smaller shop in lower Manhattan, so while I was closing my old shop and was about to move into the smaller shop; the order to “close down” non essential businesses prevented me from moving in, so I was force to store all of my equipment at a warehouse where I have to pay the rent and while its at storage I won’t be able to make ends meat.
With your donations I will be able to move all my equipment out of storage and into a new store location when all this is over, I also will be able to hire one to two people and go back to business as usual. I am a small business that believes in treating my customers with respect and dignity and offering fair prices, I believe in my community and helping when possible, with out them I won’t be in business long.
USE OF FUNDS
With your donations I will be using them for opening up the new location, paying of some back rent, getting some new equipment and helping my community by hiring one to two employees and I would like to start donating shoes for the homeless, but this is only possible with your donations and support.
