Zeke’s Special Outreach
Hurricane Irma Relief

This is not part of the Let’s Eat promotion. We do however, want to take this opportunity to let everyone know that while we are celebrating Restaurant Week, we are also collecting donations to assist our friends and neighbor in Hurricane Irma Disaster Relief. If you’re coming to Zeke’s and would like to help, it will be greatly appreciated by Irma’s many Florida victims.

We are collecting • Canned Goods • Dry Goods • Drinking Water
• Bug Repellent • Work Gloves • Non-Perishable Food Items
• and Monetary Donations made to the American Red Cross

Food Items will be split – some will go to help Englewood Locals via the American Red Cross Jubilee Center in Englewood. The balance will be for disaster relief in the Florida Keys and Naples areas. All monetary donations will be used for relief efforts in the hardest hit areas.

As it is with everything else we do, your feedback is paramount to the success of this service. The software has many features that we have the ability to customize. With your feedback, we will be able to tune our texting services to fit your needs and lifestyle. For instance, if you only wish to receive notices that will allow you to Save Money at Breakfast or just Save Money on Weekend Dinner Specials and prefer to receive texts before 9:00 am or between Noon and 3:00 pm, we can create segmented lists with rules that work best for you. We do however, need your feedback, comments and requests in order to make such improvements. Comments may be directed to zeke(at)zekesuptown.com

We want this to be a valuable service for you and at this time, we only anticipate sending a couple messages per week.We will, however, under any circumstance, NEVER send more than 4 texts per week and your phone number is strictly confidential. No purchase necessary to participate in this service and you may cancel at any time by sending a simple text. Depending on your SMS/Cell service, some users may incur fees for incoming or outgoing text messages.
