Rebuild Portland Bagelworks

A fundraiser to support the resurrection of Portland Bagelworks has been created through GoFundMe

As described on the page:

"Today, a day like any other day, turned into a nightmare. Nearly 40 minutes after being told nearby workers had hit a gas line, our bagel shop exploded. Although we are fortunate that we had evacuated and our staff did not get hurt, there is nothing left. Gone. Our years of work could all be for nothing, if we can't be up and running soon.
In addition, our team of bagel and sandwich makers are left with no source of income. No way to pay their bills. 
Yes, there was insurance. But much of the equipment came with the building. And without the equipment, we can't do business.
Your help can save our business... And our team's means of living.
We thank you for your help.
Rik & Kim
Portland Bagelworks"
