M. E. Swings Coffee Barista Virtual Tip Jar

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Swing’s has closed two of our shops at the cost of leaving the majority of our baristas out of work. We are taking things day by day and look forward to being able to open our doors again once the situation at hand has passed.  Until then, we are doing the best we can to assist our staff affected.  Swing’s is committed to covering 100% of health insurance costs for those on our policy for the allowable future, but there is more we hope to do to.

This Virtual Tip Jar has been created as a way to support our staff who are not working and lost a significant portion of their income.  We appreciate your donation if you are able to do so, it will be split equally between our staff that who are not working due to our stores being closed.  Any amount is appreciated!

Swing’s has enjoyed serving our community over the past several years and plan to have our shops open again as soon as we are able. We hope in turn that we can ask our community for support and donations to help our staff in this time of need. We are lucky to have a staff so dedicated to the craft of specialty coffee and pride ourselves on great service to our community. Our staff thinks of each other as family, and working for Swing's is more than just a job- we love what we do and the people we serve and cannot wait to be back!
