CRER Cares in Partnership with Republic Bank Delivers 106 Meals to Swedish Covenant

This meal would not be possible without the generous donation from Republic Bank.

We appreciate their partnership in this important and ongoing initiative. Republic Bank is a family-owned institution that has grown to 19 locations across Chicagoland. Check out one of their locations and find more about them at

The meals were purchased from Luella’s Southern Kitchen, located in Lincoln Square, that fed 7 nursing units focused on COVID as well as the COVID testing tent staff. Luella’s delivered some highlights from their incredible menu: shrimp and grits, bbq ribs, fried chicken, mac & cheese and cornbread.
