ATX Brands COVID-19, Relief Fund organized by Doug Guller 03/20/2020

Due to the widespread COVID-19 Pandemic, ATX Brands had to make the difficult decision to close the doors to all of its stores for the foreseeable future; effectively laying off 112 employees, leaving them completely out of work. Majority of our employees relied on their jobs as their sole source of income. In addition, a lot of our team members are unable to collect unemployment, leaving them with only their last paycheck.

We are asking for some help and relief for our employees to help them pay bills and afford simple everyday things like groceries for them and their families. We are hoping to raise $112,000 so that we are able to distribute the funds throughout the company, helping each hardworking and dedicated employee with $1,000 each during this difficult time.

Any little bit helps and is greatly appreciated. The only way we can get through this tough time is with the help and support of our community. We look forward to being able to serve you (at the many locations listed below) again soon!
