Wednesday, December 16, 2020
SquareUp Foundation, the charitable organization created by SquareOne Holding Company, raised more than $10,000 for the Chattanooga Community Kitchen during a month-long fundraising event at STIR and State of Confusion. Throughout the month of November, the restaurants allocated a portion of proceeds to benefit the organization. SquareOne Holding Company presented the donation to the Chattanooga Community Kitchen.
“The profound impact of SquareUp Foundation’s generosity, particularly as we face one of the most difficult seasons to date, will lift up countless individuals in need who rely on the services we offer,” said Chattanooga Community Kitchen CEO Jens Christensen.
“We are very appreciative of our longstanding partnership with STIR and State of Confusion.”
The most recent contribution was part of SquareUp’s ongoing commitment to organizations in the community. The foundation, announced earlier this year, was created by SquareOne Holding Company to support charitable organizations in each city where they own and operate restaurants. In addition to Community Kitchen, the Chattanooga restaurants also support Reflection Riding Arboretum & Nature Center.
“SquareOne is deeply committed to supporting the organizations making a significant impact in our communities; particularly in light of this challenging year,” said Allen Corey, CEO of SquareOne Holding. “We look forward to announcing additional fundraising opportunities in 2021.”
SquareUp also assists restaurant employees who require financial support during times of economic hardship through the HOPE (Helping Our People in Emergencies) Fund. Donations ranging between $500 and $1,000 help employees facing natural disasters, illness, injury or other emergencies.
