As you probably know, Chicago, like other cities around the world, has shut down bars and restaurants to help reduce the COVID-19 epidemic from spreading even more.
For our team of Nick's Beer Garden employees -- 21 of us -- this means that we are out of work for the foreseeable future, and we need your help.
We depend on our wages and tips to survive and provide for our families, and in the face of this closure, we risk losing our homes, utilities, and other basic needs.
Your support is crucial to our efforts to keep our team above water.
If you’re in a position to do so, please make a donation to our Employee Fund. Any amount will help. We understand that this situation is affecting all industries and that lots of people are out of work, but if you're in a position to help us out, we'll raise a glass in your honor you when we're back at work.
Thank you in advance for your contribution. All funds will go directly to our employees.
We hope that you and your loved ones are staying healthy and safe, and we hope to see you soon.
