Taking care of our care takers~ DeKalb County IL

The Covid-19 Virus is exhausting our healthcare workers and taking a HUGE toll on our local restaurants. The goal of this campaign is to raise money to buy food from LOCAL restaurants and deliver it to our amazing health care workers.

We are now being told that the increase in cases is starting to show here at our hospital. They expect to be very busy through the end of the month. We have increased our fundraising goal so we can provide meals and treats through the end of the month. 

The stay at home order has been extended through the end of April here in Illinois. Our local restaurants are struggling with a downturn in business being on average 60% loss. We are asking for a donation from you so we can buy meals and try to help them stay afloat during this difficult time. 

Let's show our local businesses and health care workers how much we appreciate them! 

We have a fb group called. "Taking care of our caretakers-DeKalb Co. IL".

Please join us for updates of it you have any ideas!
