Just as signs of spring are popping up, signs of hope and kindness are emerging across our community, too. Many of our neighborhood businesses across Chicago’s North Shore jumped in as the crisis was unfolding and forged ways to reach out and give back. As independent Chicago-area restaurant dining rooms and catering services had to close, those that were able immediately pivoted their operations to feed people in need and put many cooks and other staff back to work. They welcome donations to keep up this important service and some have special offers to bring dinner to your home, too.
Find out more about the enduring and endearing ways our community is united to help all those serving and in need on our North Shore Unites list.

Westfield Old Orchard
Over the past several weeks Westfield Old Orchard has found multiple ways to give back to the local community. This includes but is not limited to donating funds to various food banks such as No Kid Hungry Chicago and the Greater Chicago Food Depository. They also provided catered lunches from CPK for the Skokie Police Department and Shake Shack for front line workers at Skokie Hospital. They partnered with Feast & Imbibe to support their efforts (read more on that below). They also worked with the O'Hare Airport team to doante funds to support Columbia College Fashion Students who are sewing masks for healthcare workers.
