Most of you are aware that we’ve been keeping ourselves as busy as we can by doing something for various members of the front line community. Right now are hospitals are near or at their max and discussing triaged care, so if you think you’re under a lot of stress, you’re undoubtedly right, but our friends at hospitals are probably well beyond where you and I are. And for the record, people who work in restaurants are pretty stressed out right now, which is the only experience I currently have firsthand knowledge of.
So we’re keeping our karma jar full by donating meals to those people at Banner University and Saint Mary’s Hospital who are charged with protecting this community. We’re happy to help you keep your karma jar full by accepting your donation as well, and for every 250 donations we get from without, we donate another 50 from within. So once we round up 220 meals from you kind people, we’ll send along another 55 courtesy of Feast. Here’s where this week’s meals are going:
At Saint Mary’s:
COVID unit- 20 people
ICU- 25 people
Emergency Department- 40 people
Respiratory therapy- 10 people
Environmental Services- 30 people
At Banner University:
Emergency Department- 150 people
Meals are going out on Friday, July 10th.
You can call us to donate a meal, a cookie or a dollar amount. Our number is 326-9363. Here’s the menu of what we’ll be offering, again, all in cryovac so that we’re feeding everyone on every shift, not just whomever happens to be working when we show up. Thank you for your help.
