Team members of PT’s Taverns in Las Vegas raised $15,560 to provide 1,250 fellow PT’s team members with groceries.

Over the course of nine weeks and during the tavern shutdown, food was donated to 1,250 individuals and 398 PT’s team members while they were not working due to the closures of restaurants and the stay at home orders.


Jessica Kipi, who kickstarted the donations after seeing how her team had been affected financially, gathered fellow team members from all over Las Vegas, including other general and regional managers, to raise the funds.

Every dollar donated was allocated to transporting food from local food banks and groceries.

PT’s Taverns throughout Las Vegas allowed Kipi and team to store pantry items at the closed tavern locations when the quantities became too large for her to store at home.
