Giving Back During the Pandemic

At Smokey Mo’s BBQ, we’re passionate about more than delicious food. For over 20 years, we’ve been committed to helping our communities and the people that make them so great. The past year was a difficult one, and throughout that time, we made it our mission to give back to the community.

Through a number of initiatives, we’ve been able to show our support and gratitude for those working so hard to make our lives better.

Mo’Nation Donation

Our Mo’Nation Donation campaign was first introduced following the Covid-19 outbreak in March of 2020 with the goal of showing our appreciation for the healthcare workers who stepped up to care for our communities. Through the generosity of our customers via online and in-store donations, we were able to make an impact by providing sponsored meals for frontline workers. We’re honored to report that since the start of our Mo’Nation Donations campaign, Smokey Mo’s BBQ has provided over 1700 meals to those keeping our communities safe and healthy.

During one donation, our teams at Smokey Mo’s Cedar Park and Smokey Mo’s Avery Ranch delivered 425 sandwich meals to the hardworking men and women at Cedar Park Regional Medical Center.

Smokey Mo’s Round Rock prepared sandwich meals for the healthcare workers at the Baylor Scott & White clinics in Taylor, Hutto, and Round Rock.

Our team also provided 300 sandwich meals to Christus Santa Rosa Hospital Medical Center in San Antonio, TX.

In addition to these donations, we also provided meals to frontline workers at hospitals and fire stations throughout New Braunfels, Spring Branch, and Boerne.

We’re grateful to everyone in our community who contributed to help make a difference with our Mo’Nation Donation initiative.

Smokey Mo’s BBQ Hospitality Day

In addition to our frontline workers, Smokey Mo’s BBQ also implemented initiatives to help those who worked in restaurants that remained open during the pandemic to help get our communities through hard times, in addition to those impacted by pandemic-related unemployment.

The hospitality industry was one of the hardest hit, so in April of 2020, we hosted Hospitality Day. Each of our stores in San Antonio, Boerne, Spring Branch, and New Braunfels offered 40 free meals to industry workers with their community.

We’re incredibly grateful to have been able to help hospitality workers throughout central Texas.

What’s Next?

 

At Smokey Mo’s BBQ, serving the communities that have welcomed us has always been an essential part of our company culture. We are thankful to those who helped us get through the pandemic and give back to the deserving people of our community. With COVID-19 cases and hospitalization on the decline, we’re hopeful that we’ll start to see the people and industries hardest hit by the pandemic start to thrive again in this “new normal.” Regardless of what the future holds, we will remain committed to supporting the communities we call home, however we can.
