Cross Countries Group Organizes Pandemic Relief For Local Businesses


The “Cross Countries” organization is coordinating a relief effort to benefit local Oak Lawn businesses. Over the next month, the "Locked Down... But Not Out" virtual fundraiser will help raise money for Oak Lawn residents hit hardest by the global Covid-19 pandemic. This initiative is centered around a GoFundMe campaign that runs from April 20th through May 15th.

Unfortunately, the local business shutdown has affected many community members and their families. To support employees of these establishments during this difficult time, students will take on an enormous challenge. Although not physically able to be in school, they have come together to raise money for those in need. All funds generated by this campaign will be divided equally among as many businesses as we can support. Your consideration and generosity would go a long way to helping heal our community. Any donation, large or small, would be greatly appreciated! Please visit the following website for more details: Link

Cross Countries is a student-led service group. It was established in 2004. The club has raised over $225,000 to help fund local and global causes, including hospital construction overseas as well as homelessness and special needs awareness right here in our community!
