Fado Irish Pub Chicago Staff Hardship Fund

Due to the crisis, we have laid off our hourly staff and have done the best we can to support them by providing people and resources to help them with unemployment benefits and other sources of aid.


For service industry workers (front of house and kitchen) all of their income has gone away. Please consider donating even a small amount as every dollar counts. All dollars raised will go to our staff.


Please forward this campaign on to others who have a connection to the Pub and great people who work here. Share it on your social networks as well.


We are hoping to raise our goal in the next 2 weeks so we can get cash to our people sooner than later.


There will be some perks for everyone who donated once we re-open. It's going to be one heck of a party!


Stay tuned for details and thank you.
