How You Can Help
Bars and restaurants are some of hardest hit by the effects of COVID-19. These businesses are setup for day to day operations, and staff are most often compensated on an hourly and gratuity basis, requiring consistent day to day operations. Besides tight margins and long hours, hospitality can be a challenging world. Supporting your local establishments during a time of need goes a long way and will help bars and restaurants recover more quckly once COVID-19 has passed.
