Hundreds of people will be working for minimum wage this Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in fast food restaurants. For most this isn’t a choice – their name just showed up on the holiday schedule.
We’re asking that you take a few minutes away from your celebrations to show up at fast food counters or in drive‐through lanes. You will hand out $20 bills – enough for the whole crew – inside HOLIDAY CARE BLITZ envelopes.
It is amazing what an unexpected $20 can mean to someone just trying to get by.
Want to be a part but need help to cover the cost of the $20s? Big Table can partially or completely cover the cost if you want to be the bearer of the gifts. Typical fast food outlets run shifts of 5 ‐10 people so the total cost would be between $100 and $200.
Fun Ideas: Sign your family up without telling them, put an envelope in each person’s stocking & then after the gifts are opened, go as a family to deliver the surprise! Make it festive… sing a carol, bring some cookies, etc or keep it simple… whatever you do will be a huge gift to these folks!
