Hometown Heroes: Pub 72

Hometown Heroes: Pub 72

Pub 72 in Gilberts has always enjoyed providing for their customers. They’ve provided outdoor seating, music, trivia nights all on top of amazing food and drinks. Recently, they have had to close the doors to their dining room and cancel many events. However, as devastating these changes can be, the people behind Pub 72 have shifted their focus on not just what they can do for their customers, but what they can do for the community. Of course you can still order their amazing food. And we’ll be the first ones to say how much a good meal can do to improve your mood, but that’s not the only thing they’re doing.

Pub 72 has started taking donations for their Sherman Hospital Fund. This fund was created to support the nurses and doctors working at Sherman Hospital by providing them meals. Customers can easily donate by ordering from Pub 72 and saying how much they would like to donate. That amount is added to the total bill making it easy and simple to help their cause. Better than the fund itself, is the incredible response from the community. The fund has been greatly supported by Pub 72’s customers. They continue to help grow this fund to support those on the fighting COVID-19 on the front lines. This support would not hav been possible if it wasn’t for Pub 72 and their tenacity to support the community.
