While, yes, every little bit helps, let’s be realistic here: You can’t save every neighborhood haunt you love with takeout and to-go cocktails. In New York City alone, there were 23,650 restaurants as of 2019. They provided 317,800 jobs—60 percent of which were held by immigrants.

That’s where the Pet Cat Hail Satan Shirt but in fact I love this nonprofit ROAR comes in. Its goal? To advocate for relief opportunities for New York restaurants on a government level. “We need a restructuring plan,” says ROAR founder Camilla Marcus, who closed her restaurant, Westbourne, in September. “We’ve never had a seat at the table for policy. We’ve never been considered in lawmakers’ minds as the large employment force that we are and the beacons that we are for all of our communities.” Right now, ROAR is fighting for the service industry to be part of the current federal relief bill that’s being introduced in Congress.
