Tennessee bartender brought to tears after regulars surprise her with cash

The late Fred Rogers once said, “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’”

A group of friends in Memphis must have taken that quote to heart when they came together to help out someone in need. Restaurants across the Mid-South are being forced to serve only takeout and delivery, leaving many people in the food industry wondering how they will pay their bills.

Edwin Dorsey recorded himself and his business partners giving their favorite bartender Trish, who works at the Cordova Chili’s an envelope full of cash.

“We take care of our people,” Dorsey said in the video. “You don’t have to worry about nothing.”

“Throughout the years we created a bond with the bartender Trish. She has an amazing soul, works hard and overall a great person. Amongst our discussion we decided to come together and bless her with a care package because she will be without a job until the COVID-19 pass.”

Trish is seen in the video brought to tears and thanking her friends for what they did.

"They closed down all the restaurants. But, they ain't going to close down your pockets," Dorsey said.
