Jamaica Plain restaurant Café Beirut is asking for help from the community to make its rent after someone stole thousands from the Lebanese eatery.
The fundraising page says it all:
Recently, it was discovered that several thousand dollars had been stolen from the coffers of Café Beirut. Though the perpetrator has been identified and proper action is being taken, it appears unlikely that money will be recovered in time to cut the rent check, if at all.
We're reaching out to the community to help Café Beirut make rent this month so that they can continue serving the neighborhood they love. Every little bit helps the restaurant get closer to recouping the losses they need so that they can self-sustain operations once again.
