TipMKE connects community with service industry workers affected by COVID-19 closures
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The coronavirus pandemic has put thousands of restaurant workers out of jobs.
Now you can help employees at your favorite restaurants or bars.
"It is a good directory to find somebody you might not normally keep in contact with," said Allen Halas, who started TipMKE.
It's a running list of local restaurant workers that could use extra cash.
The list has their name, where they work, and convenient ways for you to send them an extra tip.
If you're a restaurant worker, it's easy to sign up.
"Any bartender or service industry member can sign up by clicking the button at the top of the website and that opens a form that automatically populates the spreadsheet, the list."
More than 400 people have signed up, from hundreds of local restaurants.
