Vi’s Pizza Raises Money for Employee who Suffered a Stroke

Mike McDirmid suffered a stroke and the restaurant is selling t-shirts to help with his medical expenses.

Vi’s Pizza in Biwabik is coming together to help one of their own. Mike McDirmid has worked at Vi’s for eighteen years and suffered a stroke a few weeks ago at work.

He’s in recovery now and is learning how to speak once again.

Vi’s is selling t-shirts to help with McDirmid’s medical costs and they’ve been overwhelmed by all the support for the man who does so much for the restaurant.

“Very upsetting because he’s been picking on me for 17 years and I pick back. It’s that he’s here every day doing the prep work and does a lot of that for them and he’s missed. It’s taken a whole army to do what Mike does,” said Miek’s co-workers.

The t-shirts will be on sale at the restaurant with all the proceeds going to McDirmid’s medical expenses.
