In times like these, we need a break from the doom and gloom with stories like this.

Raynor Garage Doors in Dixon, Illinois has mailed all 500 employees a gift card and encouraging them to order takeout from local restaurants by September. Raynor is joining the nationwide grassroots initiative "Rally for Restaurants", aiming to keep local restaurants afloat during the COVID-19 crisis.

During uncertain times Raynor is fortunate to have some of the most resilient employees. So as a sign of appreciation, we wanted to feed our Raynor families while also supporting local businesses. - Raynor Garage Doors Director of Marketing, Pete Elsenbach.

Kudos to the folks at Raynor Garage Door in Dixon for understanding the need to support locally owned and operated restaurants.

As of this article, there are only 10 Rockford restaurants involved with "Rally for Restaurants" but there's an easy fix. Anyone can submit restaurant information and owners can also fill out a form to have their businesses added to this initiative.
