25 Degrees Chicago Employee Relief


We are extending our hand for help in this hard time.

After the unfortunate events surrounding the closures of bars and restaurants in the City of Chicago, our staff has taken a huge toll financially, leaving them without jobs for at least two weeks. Most of this staff is comprised of hard-working individuals that are still in school, or have chosen the industry as their full-time career. They have been dedicated to servicing the community every day they show up to work and it is in our hopes that people recognize that and are able to help them in their time of need. 

It is with great effort that we are seeking support for everyone involved.

While we fully support the closure of restaurants and bars in reaction to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, a lot of hard working people are at a stand still and have no one to help.

All funds raised will be distributed to the staff who are currently unable to work and will be divided amongst them for rent, bills, groceries, and the likes.

We are so thankful to be able to provide service for the great City of Chicago and are especially thankful to all of you. We couldn't have gotten this far without the love from you all.
