They make our meals, mix our drinks, play us their best tunes, and keep us lookin’ fly.

And now that the State of West Virginia has ordered all bars, restaurants, and other non-essential businesses to close (or close their dining rooms), many of our friends and neighbors in the Greenbrier Valley who depend on tips to make ends meet need our help.

Many of us would regularly be patronizing restaurants, bars, salons, barber shops, and other businesses that have been ordered closed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Even if you are socially isolating, you can help to support our local service industry staff. Consider sending a “tip” to your favorite bartender, server, stylist, musician, yoga instructor, Uber driver, barber, or other service worker. Use the Google sheet linked below to find their Venmo or Paypal information. Note that you can sort by each column heading or use “ctrl+f” to find the person you are looking for by name or place of employment. If you don’t see your favorite service industry folks listed, encourage them to come and fill out the form (see below). Please circulate widely.
