Willis Tower’s “Catalog Cares” Supports Healthcare Workers, Eateries

EQ Office launched Catalog Cares, an initiative that allows both the 15,000 people who work at Willis Tower in Chicago and the public to give meals to healthcare workers on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19, while supporting restaurants at Willis Tower.

For every e-gift card to a Catalog restaurant purchased, Willis Tower will make a matching donation to Frontline Foods Chicago to feed frontline workers and impacted communities in the Chicago area. The Catalog Cares program is named after Catalog, the dining, entertainment and community experience at the tower’s base.

“The brave men and women working on the frontline are putting their lives on the line in the fight against COVID-19, and we want to thank them for their sacrifice,” said David Moore, portfolio director, EQ Office. “We also recognize the restaurant industry has been among the hardest hit by the pandemic. Catalog Cares connects the two.”
