MANHATTAN BEACH, CA — The Skechers Restaurant COVID Relief Fund in Manhattan Beach has awarded more than $600,000 in grants to 28 restaurants, the company has announced. Skechers President Michael Greenberg lives in Manhattan Beach and has long been a generous partner to those in need.
"“Manhattan Beach never ceases to surprise me with their generosity," said Greenberg in a statement. "The endless support and well-wishes pouring in since we announced the Skechers Restaurant COVID Relief Fund has been astounding. Over $600,000 in grants have been gifted to twenty-eight restaurants in Manhattan Beach.
"These funds not only validate the care residents have for local restaurants, but also showcases the vibrancy of our community. Restaurant owners and employees shared heartbreaking stories of their hurdles, so we hope that this campaign started by Skechers and the Skechers Foundation will help carry our local restaurants through these unprecedented times. By no means are we out of the woods yet.
"We must continue the restaurant relief mission as the ban on outdoor dining in Los Angeles has been extended and will likely continue until February. We ask the community to continue to support local restaurants and the Skechers Restaurant COVID Relief Fund (https://about.skechers.com/skechers-foundation/), and as we get through this together, the enchantment of our community will return stronger than ever before.”
