JCTDA creates virtual tip jar for area servers and bartenders

Inspired by current nationwide efforts to keep artists and servers fed, Jackson County Tourism and Development Authority is copying a model being used by many other cities throughout the country.

JCTDA is compiling a list of Jackson County service industry workers and their Venmo or Paypal accounts to be shared widely in order to support local bartenders and service industry folks during this indefinite shutdown due to COVID-19.

People can send a couple bucks to those who may have served you over the years. It doesn’t have to be much, but it could make a big difference in their lives. 

The JCTDA is committed to the recovery of the hospitality industry in Jackson County and to the safety and wellbeing of our community.

“Our thoughts are with those affected by the COVID-19 impacts locally,” said JCTDA Executive Director Nick Breedlove. “We are working around the clock to provide our businesses with every resource possible and are already working toward recovery planning when that time comes.”
