We’re In This Together: An Illinois Focused Resource Guide

The need to “flatten the curve” has created a situation where friends, neighbors, and family have found themselves out of work with no immediate relief or “end of the tunnel” in sight. We created this list to be a fluid community resource that’s meant to be shared and added to. We’re all in this together.

Here are different ways to donate to workers and industries affected by COVID-19
