From Depot Framily Member, René Britt: Hello Donn's lovers, I know many of us have watched as bars and restaurants close, one after the other, worrying what will happen to our beloved Depot. I have been going to Donn's since 1982, it was where Danny and I went on our second date 32 yrs ago and where he has played one Sat. a month for over 15 years. We love the Depot and cannot imagine a world where it does not exist. We met with Donn, Tammi and Michelle last week to brainstorm ways to keep the business afloat. They were proactive and received a PPP loan, but that money runs out this month. As many of you know, they were open for a very short time at 50% capacity, but with all the precautions and extra costs they were losing money daily. Most of you can imagine with home and property prices the way they are in Austin, rent is also sky high, but must be paid in a pandemic. Michelle and Tammi have great ideas for raffle prizes etc. to raise funds, but Danny suggested a Donn's Depot All Star Subscription fund. We can each give a little each month to make sure they can open again when this crisis is over and we can get together again. LET'S SAVE THE DEPOT!!! We need 250 people to pledge $50 a month, to make sure the Depot doesn't have to close. Danny and I are going to make a donation and then commit to $50 a month, for the next year. I know some are in a position to give less, and some will be able to give more, please give what you can. Pledges will go to operational costs only.
