A new campaign has launched to help restaurants struggling with business loss because of COVID-19.  Sterling Seacrest Partners, an Atlanta risk management and insurance brokerage firm, is working with Atlanta businesses to “Take Out the Virus” ( Area businesses are pledging to support local restaurants, helping restaurant employees and their families.

Here is how it works, Sterling Seacrest Partners has pledged to pay for take-out orders purchased at area restaurants. The firm will give each of its 150 employees $50 for ordering take-out from a local restaurant. They will give employees $100 if the employee orders from a restaurant that is also a Sterling Seacrest client.

“We thought this was a great concept because it aligned so closely with our core values to support our team members, our clients and our community,” says Garry Hill of Sterling Seacrest Partners. “We are fortunate to live in such an incredible city for food.  These restaurants are an integral part of the fabric of our community. As a firm, we felt like we needed to do something and not just at home and watch.”

Sterling Seacrest is challenging other Atlanta area businesses to support area restaurants by sponsoring a night of ordering in to help Take Out the Virus.

Several businesses have already signed up, including Benedetti Gucer & Associates, a wealth management firm, Piedmont Pediatrics, and Leff & Associates Public Relations.
