The parent company of Pucketts, A. Marshall Hospitality, announced that it will donate 20 percent of proceeds from a gift card sale to a staff relief fund for its employees who have been temporarily laid off due to present circumstances and COVID-19 precautions.
Restaurant group CEO Andy Marshall said he has set a goal to sell $500,000 in gift cards in order to contribute $100,000 to assist employees during these challenging times.
He said, “The core value of our company has always been to maintain a family-like, service-minded atmosphere, within our internal team and with every guest who walks through our door.
“During these trying times, we want our team to know that we are all in this together, and we hope the community will join us in supporting local business and our beloved hospitality industry as a whole.
Many people have asked me, ‘How can we help?’ My answer is simple, ‘Order some food, and buy a gift card!’”
Gift cards are available via Instagift or in-store. A. Marshall Hospitality has also created accounts on Venmo (@AMarshall-Hospitality-StaffFund) and Paypal, through which people can donate directly to the fund for temporarily laid off employees.
