Ever wish you could do SOMETHING to support a frontline healthcare worker? Buy them lunch? Pay for an extra mask?
Many of us have been wishing there was some way we could help these HEROES in the fight against COVID-19, but other than remaining in self-isolation (which does make a difference), most of us feel helpless in this respect.
I am thrilled to share that there is a FABULOUS new initiative called the HERO PROJECT which empowers each one of us to help.
How would it make you feel to know that a Doctor, or a Nurse, or a member of the Support Staff didn’t skip lunch because you provided them with a meal? How would it make you feel to know that the staff in the ICU were able to grab a banana mid-shift, thanks to you? These HEROES are taking extra risks, extra measures, working longer hours, and leaving their families at home to provide world-class medical care for the people who need them most.
They have to keep up their strength and their immunity to fight this battle and we all can help them do just that.
The Hero Project is a community-led initiative facilitated by the JGH Foundation. This is your chance to help the front-line Emergency and Intensive Care Unit Doctors, Nurses and support staff at the Jewish General Hospital. By donating to this Project are providing healthy snacks, fresh fruits and meals to the staff, who is working around the clock to keep our community safe.
A meal costs $10. You can provide one meal, or you can provide many. You can donate something today and something else next week. The bottom line is that if we feed our Heroes, they will be stronger for our community.
All you have to do to DONATE A MEAL (or MEALS!) is CLICK HERE and choose your donation amount. Healthy food will then be delivered to the frontline workers who need it. It’s really that simple.
Some of you may inspired to ‘do something more’ by sending in a big meal from your favourite restaurant. PLEASE DON’T. You can well imagine that the hospital staff are way too busy right now to manage accepting deliveries from a variety of sources. It takes them away from their call of duty, and nobody wants that. The HERO PROJECT ensures that our Frontliners can keep doing what they are doing and the appropriate meals will be ordered for and delivered straight to them without impacting operations. PLEASE DO NOT SEND SUPPLIES OR FOOD TO THE HOSPITAL. IT CANNOT BE ACCEPTED.
