Our charitable arm within the Portillo's organization provides emergency assistance to eligible Portillo's team members facing financial hardship due to unavoidable situations. There are many ways we raise money to support team members during their time of need.
Portillo's team members raise money for the Heart of Portillo's Fund through one-time donations, paycheck donations, and fundraising events.
All proceeds from the sale of Portillo's merchandise and apparel go to the Heart of Portillo's Fund. At some locations, we also sell our empty 5-gallon pickle buckets for just $2 each, with proceeds going to the Heart of Portillo's Fund.
The Restaurant Support Center hosts an annual Virtual 5k to raise funds and awareness of the Heart of Portillo's Fund.
