Help Support our Candlelite Staff!

“We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It's easy to say "It's not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem." Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes.” ― Fred Rogers

Candlelite Chicago is a neighborhood staple for great pizza and good times and the gratitude to our customers is endless.  As members of the community we need each other during these difficult times. If you are able to help out staff, whose work life has been drastically effected by recent events, we would be forever grateful. 

Our staff is family to us. 

Unfortunately, without dine-in customers almost all of our employees have been furloughed. We have created this fund to offset the loss of income for these staff members. If you are able, this is a place to send a virtual tip. These donations will be evenly divided between our out-of-work staff.

We will all get through this; we have already been inspired by the compassion we've seen in our community.  

We can't wait to see you in person as soon as we can!   

Thank you, 

Candlelite Management Team
