Community Supports Medical Workers, First Responders & Local Businesses
The Original Pancake House & 19th Ward are teaming up to support first responders and front-line medical workers impacted by COVID-19 crisis. Beginning on March 25th, we will provide individually packaged meals for front line medical workers at area hospitals and for on duty Chicago Police Officers and Fire Fighters working in the 19th Ward. These men and women are working hard each day to combat COVID-19 while providing care to those who are suffering. This is a small gesture of appreciation for all they do. The 19th Ward is also raising money to expand this effort providing more meals and support more local businesses.
Our community stands together in times of difficulty. Now more than ever, it is critical that we support those who are protecting us.
