Over the weekend, Chicago Curry House launched a fundraising-campaign to help the Nepalese victims of last week's earthquake that killed at least 3,700. The owner of the South Loop restaurant says donations can be dropped off or mailed to the restaurant.
Bala Ghimire, owner of Chicago Curry House (which serves Nepalese and Indian food), hosted a gathering on Sunday to help organize the effort, according to the Sun-Times. Donations will also be accepted online at this link. Ghimire wasn't the only one from the restaurant community to express sympathy. The folks behind the Cumin social media account posted this on Sunday night on the Wicker Park Nepalese restaurant's Facebook timeline:
Suggested donations include surgical gloves, batteries, duct tape, non-perishable foods, shoes and clothing. Besides monetary donations online, money or goods can be mailed or dropped off from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. at Chicago Curry House, 899 S. Plymouth Court, Chicago, IL 60605.
