(Beaver Dam) The Beaver Dam Chamber of Commerce is part of a push to set up a “virtual tip jar” for servers and bartenders impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. It’s a database where people can look up the digital payment information for their favorite servers. Executive Director Tracy Propst says the so-called tip jar is an online document containing the names of servers who have had their income cut since the start of the pandemic. Propst says people can find the information for their PayPal or Venmo account, then send them a few bucks – just like they would have after buying a drink or having a meal served. Propst encourages anyone who can to donate, adding that she understands not everyone is in the financial position to do so but for this who are she says (quote) “you are being called” and she hopes “you answer that call.” At last check, there were over 20 names on the document.
