“Small businesses are the backbone of our city’s economy. Fifth Third Bank recognized the immediate need to join Mayor Lightfoot and the City on this critical initiative, and we are confident others will step up as well.”
—Mitchell Feiger, Regional Chairman and CEO of Fifth Third Bank, Chicago
“Extraordinary times call for decisive and meaningful action. This effort by the Mayor means that Chicago’s small businesses hit hardest by this crisis will have an opportunity to rebuild. And make no mistake — by working together and supporting our small and independently owned businesses community, we will make it through this. WLCO continues to advocate that our restaurants and small, independently owned businesses be added to the federal stimulus bill.” —Carla Agostinelli, Executive Director of West Loop Community Organization (WLCO)
