Thirsty Scholar Employee Support

$2,265 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 61 people in 11 months
On June 20th, Thirsty Scholar employees were given less than 24 hours notice that they would not have their place of employment in the morning. At this point, we're are all unsure of whether or not we will be getting paychecks for the hours that we have worked. 

There are currently seven employees who's rent and variety of other life expenses need to be met within the coming weeks. If any of you have spent more than one occasion at Thirsty, I am sure you can identify the love and community that small nook at the corner of 16th and Penn held for so many. If you missed out on one last cup of coffee at Thirsty, please consider placing that money in the hands of those who would have made it for you. 

Love, 

The Thirsty Scholar Staff

UPDATE: The staff has received their paychecks, we believe thanks to pressure from social and news media. We are endlessly appreciative of the growing support from our friends, family, complete strangers, and media outlets and we can’t thank you enough!

While we did receive our paychecks from the last pay period, it will be the last paycheck for most of us from Thirsty Scholar. We were given less than 24 hours notice that we would be losing our jobs, and our employer only told one employee that this would be the case. Had she not realized that he didn’t have any intention of telling the rest of us, we would have been completely blindsided with zero notice. Keep in mind that some of us have been working for Thirsty Scholar for YEARS.

We are so thankful for all of the employment recommendations we have received, and while the staff has immediately begun seeking alternative employment, most of us don’t yet know how we will be paying our bills next month and your support is still so vital to our sense of security and well-being.
