Everyone has bills to pay, even during COVID-19 closures.

The Soda City Wage Worker fund exists to support those who work for hourly wages or off of tips in Richland County, SC during COVID-19-related business closures and cuts. This is an imperfect and unofficial response to a national crisis that is affecting Richland County residents, particularly lower income members of our community. If you are a salaried worker at this time, please consider donating at least what you would spend on tips to service workers in an average week.
