During these unprecedented times, Allen says he maintains a positive attitude about his business and community. “My hopes for M.E.P. Exterminating and Evergreen Park are hopes I have for our world post Corona (COVID-19)—and that is of health, happiness, and prosperity.”

Thanks to Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers for finding new ways to give back during the COVID-19 pandemic!

While the majority of its 500 restaurants are open and offering drive-through service, some of its dine-in-only restaurants have shifted operations to support their local communities until they can once again prepare their chicken finger meals.

One of the innovative ways Cane’s Crewmembers have been giving back is by sewing three-ply cloth masks. On May 19, 1,000 of these masks were donated to Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park, IL.

Teams of Cain’s employees are being paid to produce the masks, many of whom had never sewn before this initiative began. The teams work in block-schedule shifts in adherence with the company’s social distancing procedures.

“Our team is extremely proud to have the opportunity to step up and support our community in such a unique and meaningful way,” said Leader of Restaurants Olivia Fazzola. “Healthcare workers are putting their Community first, and we are honored to show our appreciation to them with these donations.”

“We are excited to have been chosen as the recipient of these handmade masks. This thoughtful donation will help us stay safe and healthy as we care for all those who come to us during this unprecedented time,” said Octavia Bonds, Community Relations Coordinator, OSF HealthCare Little Company of Mary Medical Center.

Raising Cane’s is also supporting local healthcare workers with its nationwide neck-gaiter campaign. Local Chicago area restaurants continue to sell their limited-edition supply, and 100% of the net proceeds made from these sales will be donated to Loyola Medical.

Through their partnerships with Loyola Athletics, Chicago Wolves and Oak Lawn Community High School, Raising Cane’s has been able to provide 1,248 meals across the Chicago area to healthcare workers, including Christ Hospital and Little Company of Mary Hospital.

Our local Culver’s is taking part in a company-wide promotion to benefit local food banks. From May 19–24, a dollar from every Concrete Mixer sold will be donated to the Evergreen Park Village Pantry. This initiative is a wonderful way to support our local food bank and the many residents who use it during the pandemic. Culver’s, located at 9515 S. Kedzie Ave., is open daily from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm.
