Restaurants providing relief for Haiti

Dine out next week at participating Chicago-area restaurants and help victims of Haiti's catastrophic earthquake.

From Jan. 18 to 24, a bunch of local restaurants will offer diners the opportunity to contribute to Haitian relief efforts by adding $1 to their check. At the end of the week, the total amount donated will be forwarded to Heartland Alliance, a Chicago-based nonprofit sending a team to Haiti next week to participate in on-the-ground assessments and in planning emergency responses with governmental, international, and community groups. The group will focus on immediate protection services, short and long-term psychosocial services, and health care.
