Several area businesses are lending a hand and trying to make sure that families of Clarion Hotel employees can still have a Merry Christmas. The U.S. Department of Labor is investigating the hotel and claims of wage thefts that have occurred over the past several months.

According to sources, over 45 employees of the hotel are still waiting to get paid. Many fear that because of the lost wages, families won't be able to enjoy Christmas. A GoFundMe page has been set up for donations and now several area businesses are stepping in to help too!

You can drop off donations at the following businesses. Just Coz, 402 6th Street SW, Skin Worthy Tattoo, 1601 6th Street SW, Air Filter Sales and Services, 2103 33rd Ave SW.
