Pernod Ricard Makes Holiday Donation to Workers’ Fund

By January 21, 2022Top News

Pernod Ricard USA made a $200,000 donation to Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation (RWCF), an organization whose mission is to help strengthen opportunities in the workforce and increase professional career advancement by addressing quality-of-life issues that disproportionately affect restaurant workers, 40% of whom live on poverty-level wages. This is the second year in a row that Pernod Ricard USA made a holiday donation to support the important work of RWCF. Since the start of the pandemic, businesses throughout the hospitality industry have been forced to close, putting many bartenders, waiters, hosts and kitchen staff out of work. Pernod Ricard USA said in a statement, it “acknowledges the challenges these critical members of our community continue to face and the responsibility of the wine and spirits industry to support them.”
