Employees of Capital Funding Group (CFG) and CFG Bank are each getting $200 to spend on take-out from local restaurants.

CFG owner and board chairman Jack Dwyer said his company wanted to give its workers the opportunity to pay it forward to restaurants that are struggling due to pandemic.

“We wanted to be able to help some of these restaurants get some additional business by giving our employees the funds to eat at one, or multiple. We are asking them to use the $200 at local restaurants, and maybe even leave a good tip for the person that took their order.”

Dwyer added that it is important for businesses that are financially stable to do what they can to help their fellow businesses.

“As consumers, we can all play a vital role in supporting the economic crisis the pandemic has created,” he said. “I encourage any other businesses, not only in Maryland, that have not been impacted during this pandemic to do the same. It’s important to all pitch in and get the economy back on track.”

Earlier this month, Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott ordered eateries to shut down their indoor and outdoor dining operations in response to rising coronavirus metrics, and other Maryland jurisdictions have instituted their own restrictions. Take out service is still allowed, however.

CFG is headquartered in Baltimore and has branches in the city and in the Lutherville-Timonium area. CFG provides comprehensive financing solutions for healthcare facilities across the nation, with a focus on the long-term care, assisted living and hospital sectors.
