SMALL BUSINESSES/WORKERS

  • We all know that DC runs on small business. If you feel comfortable going out to your local restaurants, bars, etc. with small crowds and/or ordering take-out for pick-up (while taking necessary precautions) please leave generous tips! Servers/bartenders are going to be massively impacted by a decrease in business. Support them now while we still can leave the house.
  • Union Stage/Jammin Java are asking for help covering the wages of their hourly workers while they are shut down. Donate to their GoFundMe.
  • Order takeout and TIP YOUR DELIVERY PEOPLE! They are also at risk and in high demand. Be kind to them.
  • Get your groceries/supplies from small, local markets! The big stores are already overwhelmed. Now is the time to support smaller stores. And they probably have more stock! Also, be kind to cashiers and all store & service employees. If there was ever a time for empathy, that is now.
