A long-time friend and supporter of Mashita, James Brown, told us about a restaurant in California providing catering to hospital workers through their Adopt a Doctor or Nurse program. That inspired us to see what we could do for our dedicated healthcare workers, leading to the start of the #GiveSsam Project.
We are currently coordinating with Sentara RMH to provide meals to different departments and staff. Our first round will be delivered on Wednesday, April 8, serving the respiratory therapists and progressive care nurses. We are saving the remaining donations until we have enough to feed 60 ER nurses.
We hope this project evolves to include other organizations and we can continue this pay-it-forward gifting of meals to people across the community.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Every time we reach $150 worth of donations, we will use the funds to deliver meals to RMH
