DALLAS — The Dallas Mavericks have been a part of the North Texas community for 40 years and are committed to supporting local vendors, businesses and non-profits. In light of the current situation, the organization announced today that it will provide full reimbursement to employees for breakfast or lunch purchases made from independent local establishments in the region.
“At a time when people may feel the financial strain of business closures, social distancing and more, supporting our local community is even more important,” said Proprietor Mark Cuban. “While encouraging my team to take care of themselves and those around them and to use healthy practices, I also encourage them to support our local North Texas businesses, and I am happy to partner with Dallas Mavericks staff to do so.”
The reimbursement plan will be offered to employees of both the Dallas Mavericks and Mark Cuban Companies. It will include purchases made from all small, local and independent establishments. While employees are strongly encouraged to take part in the program, they are asked to not go out should they be feeling any symptoms of illness. Takeout or delivery will gladly be reimbursed as well.
The Mavericks announced Friday they will also cover the lost wages of American Airlines Center employees who would have worked Mavs home games.
