On June 5, Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot joined Chicago Community Trust President & CEO Dr. Helene Gayle and local partners to announce the launch of Together Now: Chicago's Fund to Rebuild Our Neighborhoods.

In collaboration with The Chicago Community Trust, the City of Chicago is launching the Together Now fund to unite money raised by Chicago's philanthropies, corporations, and individuals to be disbursed to small businesses and not-for-profits throughout the city that have experienced damage as a result of activities over the past week.

The fund is starting with an initial $10-million city commitment to address immediate needs of small businesses, and Jewel-Osco announced its support as the fund's first donor. Lightfoot was joined by representatives from Jewel-Osco on June 5 to announce a $1-million contribution to help small businesses as they begin to rebuild.

In addition to the $1 million donation, Jewel-Osco is also launching a pin pad campaign at all 37 Chicago locations. When checking out, customers will be prompted to donate select dollar amounts, $1, $3 or $5 to the Together Now fund. This campaign will run through July 31, with the potential for expansion based on additional need throughout the city.

More information about the eligibility requirements, size of grants and the number of recipients will be determined in the coming days as the City continues to take inventory of the total damages. In the meantime, for more information or to make a donation, visit CCT.org/togethernow .
