As coronavirus has disrupted our normal routines and forced us to practice social distancing, those in the service industry have been greatly affected. 

To help some of Chicago's favorite restaurants, music venues, bars, and entertainment locales during this turbulent time, we've put together a list of fundraising efforts you can donate to today.
