2Bears Tavern Group Staff Assistance Fund

2Bears Tavern Group is comprised of three LGBTQ+ bar establishments in the Andersonville and Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago: The SoFo Tap, Meeting House Tavern and Jackhammer. This fund has been set up by the 2Bear Tavern Group team to provide financial assistance to our 25 team members who rely on tips for a large portion of their income and are consequently experiencing severe financial hardships caused by the COVID-19 global pandemic. As most of you know, the State of Illinois mandated that all bars close as of March 16. Full closure of our taverns will last at least until the end of June, possibly longer. In addition to assisting our staff, we will be donating 10% of funds received here to Care for Real, a non-profit dedicated to serving the north side of Chicago by providing food, clothing, counseling services, and a pet pantry, for those in need. Thank you so much for your patronage and support. We consider ourselves lucky to be a part of amazing Chicago communities and to work with an incredible team. We look forward to serving you once again in the near future. #SmallBusinessRelief
