La Crosse Virtual Tip Jar

In this time of pandemic and hardship, remember to think of your fellow residents of the Coulee Region who would be normally staffing the numerous bars, restaurants and other businesses ordered closed or lacking in business. We have set up a virtual "tip jar" to provide aid to those who are currently struggling.

While "tipping" is often an excuse to keep wages low, in times like these we need to remember that those in our communities who serve our food, pour our drinks, cut our hair, and perform other crucial roles in our daily lives, now need our support. We hope we can build a better future with proper social safety nets so when the country's systems collapse, workers can still survive.

If you are one of the affected members of the service industry please fill out the google form and you will be automatically added to the list.
