NAPERVILLE, IL — As coronavirus fears have shut down restaurants throughout the state, Naperville has started a fund to provide restaurant meals to first responders and health care workers. Naperville Helps! has established a GoFundMe to collect funds for meals that will be sent to employees at Edward-Elmhurst Health, along with the Naperville Fire Department and Police Departments.

Kaylin Risvold, President and CEO of the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce said in a statement about the program, “This idea came from a community member who just wanted to help our businesses and those working on the front lines. It took ONE IDEA, shared with us, to initiate this campaign. We know our incredible community will come together to support this effort because it benefits those who support us.”
