Pittsburgh Virtual Tip Jar
Help Support Service Industry Workers
Give Someone a Tip
Many of us would regularly be patronizing bars, salons, restaurants, and other businesses that have been ordered closed. 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, aesthetician. Use the form linked below to find their Venmo/Paypal info. Note that you can find service industry workers using the drop-down menu to select a place of business, or choose to have any number of entries randomly selected to send tips to. 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.

Get On the List
The city of Pittsburgh has ordered all bars, restaurants, and other non-essential businesses to shutter. Many of our friends and neighbors depend on tips to make ends meet. This virtual tip jar is for local service industry staff - employees at bars, restaurants, salons, etc - to post your Venmo or Paypal information so that customers, neighbors, and Pittsburgh community members can continue to support you. Please note: Any information you share will be made publicly available.
