Hello friends and neighbors of Teton Valley. Overnight, Big Hole BBQ sustained significant damage from a structure fire. As we all know the cost of living in our community is very high and our service workers have busted their tails all summer to keep our economy moving. As a result of the significant damage, many workers, perhaps 15-20, or more, will be displaced from work for an unknown amount of time. With builders and contractors being backed up for months if not years, who knows how long the rebuild will take. What we do know is that all those folks dependent on pay to survive in the service industry need our help to take care of their bills, their families. Yes, there are lots of jobs out there right now, but we don't know if employees of Big Hole BBQ will get the same pay, the same hours, etc. as we go into the off season.
We are creating this go fund me to help those employees survive. We will be working directly with Heidi Trenske, a manager with Big Hole BBQ, to make sure acquired funds get to those in need. We have reached out to the Community Resource Center of Teton Valley in preparation for the potential financial need of rental assistance/housing assistance and may other services they offer. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
