The Chive Chapters in Illinois and Chicago make us proud to call Chicago, IL our former home. Some of the best meetups we’ve seen have come from our former stomping grounds. They are not only the wildest Chivers out there, but also the most generous.
Earlier this year, Chive on Chicago raised over $20,000 for Chive Charities and the 100 Club of Chicago, which helps provide for the families of police officers, firefighters and paramedics who have lost their lives in the line of duty. All in all, they’ve raised over $40,000 for organizations such as The American Red Cross, One Fund Boston, Chicago Food Pantry, and Washington, IL Tornado Relief. Their events not only support those causes financially but they raise awareness about the issues at hand and stimulate local business. They almost always exclusively reach out to family or privately owned venues for their parties so they can support small business.
