Leave a Tip
We may not be going out for a meal or a drink right now, but consider still leaving a 'tip' for a Huntsville service industry worker. This platform randomly selects a Huntsville-based waiter, hostess, bartender, or other hospitality professional and connects you to their Venmo or Cash App, allowing you to support them during this difficult time. Remember- every little bit helps.
Many Huntsville attractions are struggling with reduced attendance and event cancellations. These organizations add so much to the quality of life for our community, as well as educate visitors and residents alike on history, art, and much more. Now is the perfect time to join a membership program at any of our amazing museums, or consider making a donation. Space Camp, the Huntsville Ballet, and the EarlyWorks Children's Museum have started GoFundMe campaigns to make it easier than ever to support with your wallet.
Food Banks, School Lunch Services, and more
