Coastal Roots Hospitality Launches Heartfelt Fundraising Campaign to Support Task Force Antal

Press Releases

MONTEREY, Calif. — Demonstrating their unwavering commitment to community welfare, Coastal Roots Hospitality (CRH), the proud owners of renowned establishments including Rio Grill, Tarpy’s, Montrio, and Coastal Roots Events & Catering has initiated a fundraising plan to generate up to $50,000 in support of the humanitarian organization Task Force Antal.

Under the stewardship of co-owners Ken and Mona Donkersloot, CRH has donated $25,000 as a challenge to match all public donations, up to $25,000, until the culmination of 2023. Task Force Antal (TFA), a non-profit volunteer organization, specializes in crisis management and evacuation support for U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, allies, and their families, primarily focusing on Afghanistan. In 2021, under a similar initiative over $51,ooo was raised for TFA.

"Beyond our commitment to faith, family, friends, and food – which is more than our motto – we see our role in the community as an opportunity to make a positive impact," stated Ken Donkersloot. CRH aims to seamlessly integrate these core values into a distinctive hospitality  experience while actively contributing to the betterment of the local community.

In the spirit of community engagement, CRH has been a steadfast supporter of local nonprofits through initiatives like the Pick It Up-Pay It Forward program. This program, which has been operational since 2020, donates 10 percent of all proceeds from carry-out orders from CRH's three restaurants to local charities. During the pandemic's peak, CRH collaborated with various local charities, contributing over $300,000 to support crucial community initiatives.

Since 2021,  CRH has continued to be a valued partner of Task Force Antal, recognizing the organization's remarkable achievements:

Successful Evacuations: Managed the safe evacuation of more than 1,400 American citizens, legal permanent residents in Afghanistan, with Special Immigrant Visa status, including several high-value assets, amid heightened security profiles.

Emergency Support: Responded to over 100,000 calls for safety, safely evacuating 7,723 individuals and providing care and sustenance to over 2,000.

Ongoing Operations: Continues to provide extraction options and coordinate crisis management operations.

Family Support: Collaborated with the White House and the Office of the Secretary of Defense to secure approval for evacuating over 1,500 US active duty soldiers' family members.
