Dipco Staff Fundraiser

A three-alarm fire the morning of Sept 28th caused $400,000 in damages to the historic and beloved Lancaster Dispensing Company — a bar and restaurant in the heart of Lancaster, PA.

While the business itself was insured, 22 of the honest and hardworking staff-members will be without their regular income for 6 months while the establishment is rebuilt.

Many of us have come to love Dipco's front-of-house staff, however, this fundraiser is especially beneficial to the back-of-house staff and those with families on a single income. This includes a dishwasher who has never missed a day of work in his 20+ years at Dipco and two refugees.

Your contribution will make the lives of these community members a little easier in their time of need. I can tell you, the outpouring of love and support by the community mean more to the staff than I could ever express. Thank you.


Your generous donations will be distributed equitably to employees by Brad and Judey, the owners.

If it matters, my name is Adam. I live a few hundred feet from the Lancaster Dispensing Co and have gone there nearly every day since 2011. These are humble people who will not ask for help, so I am asking for them because I know they would do it for me.
