With Ohio's stay at home order slowing -- and in some cases, closing -- business at restaurants across the state, a new website allows users to tip service workers in Northeast Ohio during their time of need.
Launched by Saucy Brew Works, ClevelandTipJar.com gives users an organized place to send tips and donations to waiters and bartenders across the city. Users can choose which specific person to tip, or be paired with one randomly and send money through either Venmo, PayPal, or Cash App.
Service workers looking to be added to the website's database can do sign by signing up at the following link.
"Every time you have a drink or a take-out meal at home during social distancing, consider tipping a local worker through Venmo, PayPal, or Cash App," the website asks.
Last week, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine ordered that bars and restaurants across the state be closed due to concerns regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19). Takeout and delivery options, however, have been allowed to remain open, as will be the case when Ohio's stay at home order goes into effect on Monday night.
