Cubs Charities team up with others in community to provide meals
Cubs Charities started an initiative in the beginning of April to help give back to essential workers in Chicago who are helping battle the COVID-19 pandemic. They partnered up with local restaurants to give more than 2,500 free meals to hospital workers all across the city.
The restaurant partners include Crosby’s Kitchen, 4 Star Restaurant Group, Home Run Inn, TBC and Evelyn’s. Throughout the month of April, this partnership delivered free meals across Chicago neighborhoods, ranging from Mercy Hospital in Bronzeville to AMITA Health St. Joseph Hospital right in Lakeview.
Earlier in April, Cubs Charities partnered with the Lakeview Food Pantry to help give meals to senior citizens and also purchased more than 3,800 meals to help lower-income Chicagoans. They expanded by opening a temporary food site for Lakeview Food Pantry at Wrigley Field in mid-April.
Cubs Charities also partnered with the American Red Cross to have a blood drive at Wrigley Field on April 24th. There are plans for another blood drive in the coming weeks.
