COVID-19 Relief Fund Launched to Assist Displaced Employees


CMSDC

ChicagoMSDC launches a COVID-19 Relief Fund campaign to provide financial assistance to laid-off or furloughed employees of Greater Chicagoland minority business enterprises.

ChicagoMSDC has been service to minority business enterprises (MBEs) for over 50 years. We are committed to certifying, developing, connecting and advocating for MBEs and there is no time better than the present to increase our support.

As of Monday, April 13, 2020 ChicagoMSDC launched the COVID-19 Relief Fund to provide some measure of financial help for laid-off or furloughed employees of Greater Chicagoland minority business enterprises. The ChicagoMSDC COVID-19 Relief Fund benefits MBE employees who have been recently displaced, furloughed or laid-off. Available relief funds will be distributed directly to help defray the cost of essential living expenses such as food, medicine, utilities, or rent/mortgage.

If you are interested in providing assistance, please consider “donating your commute” to help employees who have been laid-off or furloughed due to COVID-19. Donating one or two months of your commuting costs would be a fantastic way to get involved.
