Many people who working in the service industry work for tips. In an attempt to stop community spread of COVID-19, restaurants had to close their dining areas, bars had to shut down, so did salons and tattoo shops. Many people who rely on tips are now without income. Hot 97-5, US 103-3, 96-5 The Fox, Cool 98.7 and SuperTalk 1270 want to help service industry/tipped workers with a Virtual Tip Jar.

Show your favorite server, bartender, cosmetologist, or other service industry worker  love by sending a virtual tip via Venmo, PayPal, or Cash App. Whether you want to donate one dollar or $100, your donations can help people in the Bismarck-Mandan area whose jobs have been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
