In the City of Chicago, 70% of the COVID-19 deaths were Black residents, even though Black people make up only 29% of Chicago’s population. The crisis has only underscored the deeply-rooted and systemic inequities that have persisted for generations for the families we serve: 98% are Black, 100% are low income, and many don’t have access to basic needs.
I Grow Chicago, alongside our Englewood community, is focusing all of our resources on helping our neighbors during the COVID-19 pandemic. But we can’t do it alone. We’re asking you to make a gift to I Grow Chicago in support of our COVID-19 relief efforts. Every dollar counts in our work to protect those most vulnerable. 100% of your gift will support our community and our frontline workers in our COVID19 response. Help us build a community of support. Let’s show the residents of Englewood, and the entire world, that no life is expendable.
