Family Owned Store BURNED DOWN IN CHICAGO

Quick Stop has been around for over 30 years in the Southside of Chicago. We ALWAYS stand with our community, but this was absolutely terrible. We are a family owned business owned by 2 ARAB - BELIZE BROTHERS WHO built this store from absolutely nothing. This is our ONLY source of income.
When COVID-19 hit that drastically affected our income. Sadly, on 05/31/2020 our store was looted and broken into, after leaving, our store was set on fire.
QUICK STOP was LOOTED,  VANDALIZED and DESTROYED 5/31/2020. This Minority-owned business is left trying to pick up the pieces amidst mourning with the community.

WE are active members of their community. We pray in a mosque nearby, we donate to the children of our community in the beginning of the school year with fresh book bags, pencils and crayons. Sadly we have lost a store we spent many years to build, and now I have no income.

Anything you can donate will be a blessing. Thank you all.
