The Smith is a favorite among the many wonderful anchor restaurants that call Lincoln Square home. Through this crisis, the eatery has remained open for take-out and delivery focusing on staying connected to the community. Now, they have created a donation fund to support staff and the restaurant's additional efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Be The Smith Fund was created as part of the restaurant's efforts to keep their team at work and hire back as many people as possible when it is safe to do so. These donated funds will be distributed directly to staff members.

Additionally, The Smith has donated 415 meals and counting to hospital workers on the front lines of this crisis. If there is a hospital you’d like to support with The Smith or contribute to their current efforts, you can reach out about it to

Of course, many of our other local businesses and organizations have set up funds to directly support staff during these difficult times.
