Help the Monterey Service Industry
Every time you have a drink during social distancing or prepare your own meal at home, consider tipping a local service industry worker through Venmo or Cash App.
Right now, your family, friends and neighbors in the service industry are severely impacted by social distancing and quarantine. Fewer patrons and closing restaurants is tough on everyone, from the customers to the staff, and every little bit helps. (Plus, it feels good to tip.)
We've randomly selected this worker just for you. Please help them out with a tip!
