Chiefs for Ukraine | LCFS-360 Youth Services
Downtown Naperville Chiefs for Ukraine
On Tuesday, April 12, several Downtown Naperville restaurants and food stores will unite to help provide relief to Ukrainian refugees. Bev’s, Empire Burgers & Brew, Hizemans and The Lantern are just some of the restaurants that will donate 25% of their profits that day to support World Central Cuisine. The non-profit organization serves hot, nutritious meals at border crossings and in Ukraine itself to help those affected by the Russian invasion. Some specialty candy stores like Ben & Jerry’s, Cinnaholic and Naper Nuts & Sweets also participate in fundraising. The idea for the #DowntownNapervilleChefsforUkraine effort came from SixtyFour Wine Bar owner Loren Beadle. The complete list of participating restaurants is available on the downtown Naperville website. Pick-up and take-out orders will apply to efforts.
