Carmel Gives is a movement that was created to help local businesses while providing assistance to those in need in surrounding communities through creative win/win programs and grants to nonprofits and City government. Working closely with other organizations, including Carmel Cares, the Carmel Chamber of Commerce and the Carmel Residents Association, Carmel Gives encourages grassroots support to quickly and efficiently get community projects up and running. To date we have successfully executed over 110 projects and contributed over $1,200,000 to help organizations and families make it through the COVID-19 pandemic. If the Monterey Peninsula and its people are a part of your life, then please consider working with us to help.
Since 2020 we have contributed 5% of all our real estate fees from all transactions to support local causes, and would love to partner with friends, colleagues, clients, other agents, businesses, and the community as a whole.”
Carmel Gives is a movement to help local businesses and provide assistance to those in need during this difficult time.
Due to COVID-19 shutdown orders, Carmel-by-the-Sea restaurants have been greatly impacted. With only To-Go food allowed, revenues were greatly reduced, a large percentage of restaurant staff were cut and their ability to maintain an ongoing business has been put in doubt.
The Carmel Restaurant Food Production Grant program was created to allow restaurants to produce bulk and ready-to-eat meals for local non-profits, churches and others serving food to individuals and families who need nutritious food. The goal is to allow restaurants to profitably create meals so they could bring some staff back and assist them in weathering this terrible business climate while feeding thousands of people in our communities.
Our first project supported local seamstresses making washable cloth face masks using materials donated by area residents. In the first week alone, over 1,000 beautiful free masks were distributed through local restaurants, retailers and directly to the Carmel Foundation and senior housing in the area.
Masks were distributed at these Carmel businesses: Nielsen Brothers Market & Deli, Stationæry, Eco Carmel, Treehouse CAFE, Basil Carmel, Flaherty’s Seafood Grill & Oyster Bar, and Village Corner Carmel Bistro. 1,000 face masks were also acquired from two local high school students and distributed to families of farm workers in Salinas Valley.
