Main’s Treat Coffeehouse in Romeo accepts donations for nurses, families in need

ROMEO, Mich. – Main’s Treat Coffeehouse in Romeo found a unique way to work through the coronavirus outbreak.

It has only been open for six months, but it has become a central location. The owner, Jon Rose, isn’t letting customers into his shop.

The entrance is blocked by a donation box, seeking critical medical supplies for nurses. His storage area in the back has become a holding area for goods for families in the community who need help.

Two doors down, at the Rustic Bluebird, a family is doing what they need in order to survive. The casual bistro and caterer is offering curbside service.
