Colley Elevator Covid 19

Colley Elevator is getting in the game to help our communities and health care workers.  We will be fundraising for the Northern Illinois Food Bank, Greater Chicago Food Depository, Loyola Health Care workers and Elmhurst, IL Health Care workers. 

Food – We have a lot of people that are out of work – 10 million signed up for unemployment in the last two weeks. These vital food depositories are going to need to service a new large population.  Many of the typical food panties have closed or need to work in alternate ways.

Health care workers – These are the front line people helping battle this devastating virus.  We picked Loyola - Maywood, IL and Elmhurst Hospital - Elmhurst, IL.

For any donation of $10.00 of more we will send you a Colley Elevator hand sanitizer and match your donation.  We have $2,500.00 in matching funds.  The $2,500.00 would come from Colley Elevator's managing partner, Craig Zomchek.  We will also subsidize all credit card fees associated with the Gofund me site.

Your $10.00 donation gets matched and will equal $20.00.  Your $50.00 donation gets matched and will equal $100.00.  Each day Colley will match the day’s donation and send funds out to the 4 areas we are supporting.

After you donate send your contact information to [email redacted] so we can send out the hand sanitizer.

Remember each donation is matched [up to a total of $2,500.00] and you will get you a Colley Elevator hand sanitizer while supplies last.

Give back to those who are less fortunate and those who are putting their life on the line to save our loved ones.

4/6/20 update - Match of $1035.00 + the initial $100.00 makes $1,135.00 from CZ to match all donations.   Total 4/5-4/6 draw is $2,170.00 which equals $542.50 to each of the 4 causes to be donated tonight.  Lets fill up the bucket and give some more to those who are in need and those helping save lives!   Thank you to everyone who donated so far!

4/7/20 update - Donations of $1,445.00 today and match of $1,445.00 from brings us to a total donation of $2,890.00 today and a total of $5,060.00 distributed to the four causes.  Thank you so much to everyone who donated!  The matching portion is completed!  Feel free to donate more and I will make sure it gets to the correct place.  I am honored to be surrounded by so many great people!
