CRER (Chicago Real Estate Resources, Inc .) has launched an initiative to do our part in helping our community recover from the COVID-19 Pandemic.  All funds raised will go towards the supply of meals for Chicago area first responders and those on the front lines risking their lives to help our families, neighbors and clients recover.

Through this initiative, our goal is to support local restaurants, the landlords they pay rent to, the lenders who rely on their mortgage payments and thank the essential workers on the front lines battling this pandemic.

We will be announcing new local restaurant partners and organizations each week and will be continuing to do so on a regular basis until our funds run out – don’t let that happen!

We welcome individuals and corporations as partners in this endeavor to support those that have been greatly affected by this pandemic.  Please email us at to inquire about how you can become a partner in our efforts.

CRER and the initial round of partners have deposited the first $13,500 donated (estimated 1,400+ meals) as matching funds.  Please check in on a regular basis to watch our progress as we hope to grow this initiative through our expansive network to accomplish this mission and keep it running as long as possible.  We delivered through our first restaurant partner on April 21st!
