On August 23rd, 2019, the Revival Chili food trailer went up in flames on Interstate 376 right outside downtown Pittsburgh. Thankfully no one was injured in the accident, but the business lost everything. As you may know, Revival Chili's mission is to provide employment opportunities to underserved individuals, specifically re-entering citizens. While employed, the staff has access to life skills training that helps with personal growth and professional development. Without the trailer, we are have been struggling to provide steady paychecks to our at-risk employees.
Since the trailer burned down there has been tremendous outreach from the community wanting to help Revival Chili rise from the ashes. With this campaign, we are hoping to raise funds so that we can continue to pay our employees and get back up and running. We are also hoping to come back stronger than before and use this opportunity to create more jobs for the community.
Thank you to everyone who has been supporting us through this tragedy. We appreciate all of the love, support, and donations.
We hope to be back on the road serving chili again soon!
