The Mission Bernal Merchant’s Association has been working hard for the last week or so as the organization has rallied to provide assistance to residents and businesses displaced by the big five-alarm fire.
Today, Tuesday June 28, MBMA member businesses are offering special deals to help raise funds for the fire victims, so it’s a great day to shop and dine on our stretch of Mission Street:
Help our neighborhood rebuild!
Mission Bernal merchant fire relief June 28
Since the fire on June 18, our neighborhood has really come together as a community. Among other efforts, many of the businesses in Mission Bernal are doing their part to help out the residents and merchants that were victims of the fire.
On Tuesday, June 28, we encourage everyone to visit your favorite Mission Bernal business to show your support. Go to dinner at your favorite restaurant. Grab a drink at a local bar or get your hair cut.
Get some ice cream at Mitchell’s – they are donating 25% of their sales tomorrow. Buy art at Secession and we will donate 20% of the purchase price directly to the displaced merchants. Cafe 78 is donating 15% of sales, and Blue Plate is donating the proceeds of meatloaf and mac and cheese sales.
Multiple fundraisers are happening through the neighborhood in support of both the merchants and businesses Take a moment to appreciate the community and send positive thoughts for the rebuild efforts!
Participating businesses will have information on how they are contributing, and how to donate to the neighborhood businesses displaced by the fire. You can also donate through our web site, www.mbmasf.org.
