Fashion Brand Morning News Releases Luxury T-Shirt to Support Local Restaurants
NEW YORK, Dec. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Nationwide, restaurants are closing at an expeditious rate due to COVID-19. According to a recent Eater New York article, more than 1000 restaurants have closed due to indoor dining closures because of the never-ending coronavirus pandemic. Many restaurants sought financial refuge during the summer months when outdoor dining was a massive hit among patrons who experienced quarantine fatigue. However, due to weather changes associated with winter and a complete shutdown of indoor dining in places like New York, Morning News strives to aid struggling owners with the "Support Your Local Restaurants" T-shirt. The idea is that the more people wearing the T-shirt will encourage fellow Americans to order from local restaurants, which may help keep establishments open. Moreover, a percentage of proceeds will be donated to ROAR, which will disperse the funds to the restaurant owners and employees. This month-long campaign aims to raise fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000) in the spirit of supporting communities when in need.
When asked what sparked the need for this campaign, the owner of Morning News, Meyer Tawil, stated, "As a foodie, I eat out at restaurants at least four times a week. It is extremely upsetting that many restaurants are not receiving government funding, and I want to do all I can to help."
Morning News Ltd.'s ("Morning News") mission is to combine the forward style of streetwear with the wearability of contemporary clothing and deliver accessible, luxe clothing in different fabrications every season. Morning News was created by Meyer Tawil and his sister Flora Harari because of their mutual love of style, family, and "the good life." Influenced by corner nostalgia, the brand will always inspire the relaxed mood of neighborhood gatherings, reading the morning newspaper, grabbing a coffee, and living a relaxed life.
