Virtue Restaurant Employee Support

On March 17th, 2020 due to unprecedented circumstances Virtue Restaurant of Chicago, IL, like many others, was forced to close its doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

While there is no doubt that this was the correct course of action needed to limit the spread of the virus and keep citizens safe, the effects of the closures are financially devastating to a majority of those in the hospitality industry.

Today, I humbly ask for your support and generosity in raising the 2-3 weeks of pay for the Virtue team excluding the Chef and proprietor.

All proceeds will be distributed in accordance with average weekly take-home pay.  Our goal is to aid in keeping food on the tables of our beloved employees' families and a roof over their heads.  

Thank you for your love and support. 

Chef Erick Williams & Team
