About the Initiative
The Spartanburg Jaycees Angel Shot initiative is a new program introduced by the Spartanburg, South Carolina chapter of JCI USA in partnertship with the City of Spartanburg Police Department and the Safe Homes Rape Crisis Coalition (SHRCC). This program is being implemented throughout the city to aid local patrons of our local bars and restaurants in the event they feel unsafe for any reason. They can order an “Angel Shot” from their bartender or waiting staff member to seek assistance with removing themselves from their potentially unsafe situation.
Please see the “Angel Shot” menu below for a description of each available shot*. Please also read the Meet Our Partners section and show your support for them. This initiative would not have been possible without their partnership!
*Note that although each shot coordinates with a different request and will tell the bartender or waiter/waitress exactly how to proceed with helping the patron to safety, the patron may also simply order an “Angel Shot” which will communicate to the bartender or waiter/waitress that they need help in general. Also, an Angel Shot menu flyer will eventually be displayed in the women’s restrooms at various bars and restaurants throughout the city. A QR code will be present on the flyer with a convenient mobile version of the menu. In the event of a dire emergency however, please immediately dial 911.
