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.
