Community Supports Medical Workers & Local Businesses

The Original Pancake House & 19th Ward are supporting front-line medical workers impacted by COVID-19 crisis.  On Wednesday, March 25th, we will sponsor individual breakfasts for the doctors, nurses, physician’s assistants and other staff in Advocate Christ Medical Center’s emergency room and critical care department.  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; visit our GoFundMe page.  

Our community stands together in times of difficulty.  Now more than ever, it is critical that we support those who are protecting us.  If you are interested in supporting this work, please click here to donate online or mail a check payable to “19th Ward Youth Foundation” at 10402 S. Western Ave., Chicago, IL 60643. Thank you for your generosity.
