Capitol Hill Crab Cakes Halfway to Fundraising Goal After Burst Pipe Forces Closure

via GoFundMe

Thanks to Jaime for alerting us to the Go Fund Me campaign for Capitol Hill Crab Cakes (1243 Good Hope Rd, SE):

“Family, I come to you humbled but not broken. Time is of the essence and we need your support TODAY.

Upon my return over the Holiday weekend, I entered my restaurant to prepare for the next business day. Shockingly, I found a caved in ceiling on the restaurant floor with gallons of water pouring in, flooding our entire kitchen and front dining area. A pipe burst has caused severe damage to our entire building, equipment, and materials. The landlord has placed the expensive repair bill solely on me. Due to the cost for the extensive water damage, we do not know when we will reopen.

If you know me, I pour my entire heart and energy into serving my community by providing quality food in an underserved neighborhood otherwise known as a food desert in Historic Anacostia. Through your support there would be no Capitol Hill Crab Cakes. Today I am asking you to show us that same kind of support that’s helped us thrive these past few years, now in our time of struggle.

Please donate towards Capitol Hill Crab Cakes’ equipment and building expenses today in the midst of us not being able to serve our community we know and love.

Thank you & keep us in your prayers.

-Horatio Davis
Owner of Capitol Hill Crab Cakes”
