Special 2021 Benefactors
Many of our loyal Block Sponsors have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly those in
River North’s vibrant hospitality sector. Fortunately, we are able to sustain operations in 2021 thanks to the generosity
of three organizations that believe in our mission and care deeply about the welfare of this community.
We hope and expect to return to our normal funding model in 2022, but in the meantime, wish to express our
heartfelt appreciation to Verilife, Salesforce and Sunnyside for their invaluable support during this challenging period.
These firms, along with our individual 2021 Block Sponsors, epitomize good corporate citizenship and have
enabled us to continue making River North cleaner, safer and more beautiful, while creating
potentially life changing opportunities for our excellent crew members.
