COVID Support For Marquette's Restaurant Workers

It's no secret. Everyone is on lockdown because of COVID, which means a lot of people are losing the income they depend on to live. 

These people -- your baristas, bartenders, waiters, bussers -- all depend on the tips they get from work to live. They take care of us while we're out enjoying lunch or getting our morning coffee. Now it's our time to take care of them. 

That's where you come in! We are trying to gather funds to distribute weekly, on Friday's, via Venmo. We will split everything evenly between the people who come forward and request help, for fairness. 

If you would like to apply to be on our list of recipients for relief funds, you must:

We will be as fair as humanly possible, and we trust you to be honest in these strange and trying times. This project is from a local Marquette citizen who wants to give back to the community, and we appreciate any and all support. 

Please share the word! If you have even $5 to spare, what you might have spent on your tip for lunch perhaps, we will collect it for immediate distribution. These folks are likely to need money now!
