Little Angie’s Employees Help Co-Worker In Need

After Bobby Poirier needed emergency neck surgery, his co-workers are coming to his aid

DULUTH, Minn. – The employees at Little Angie’s in Canal Park are stepping up to help a co–worker in need. Prep cook Bobby Poirier needed to have emergency neck surgery, which left him out of commission for five weeks. His co–workers decided to help him out by donating all the tips they earned on Monday, to help bobby recover some of his medical bills.

“It’s amazing,” Poirier said. “They’re great people. I love working with them. Just amazing. I just appreciate everything. Everybody is excellent. I love working here.”

Poirier has been with the restaurant for more than 18 years. Little Angie’s had more employees offer to help than they expected, and even past employees wanted to help their old friend.

“Lots of old employees, employees that have worked here years ago were like ‘Bobby, oh my gosh, how can we help, what can I do?'” general manager Sandy Kolasinski said. “I think it’s meant a lot to people they have this opportunity to help somebody that they worked with.”
