We will be providing daily meals to the doctors, nurses, technicians and other emergency room staff. Each meal costs ~ $13. The Rotary Club is kicking in $1,600 to cover the first week, to start things off.
We hope our fellow Brooklynites will join us and contribute $10, $25, $50 (or whatever you can afford), to sustain and thank our medical first responders.
The meals will be purchased from PLG Coffee House and Tavern, a restaurant in East Flatbush near the hospital. This effort will also help keep a local eatery open during this economic downtown. $1,600 per week, or a total of $4,800 to cover 3 weeks, is what will be needed.
A similar fundraiser for a private hospital in Brooklyn has raised $90,000 in 12 days, through contributions of $50 and less, from regular people. Kings County hospital’s need is much greater, as the local population there is financially hurting.
If we raise more money than is needed, we will start providing meals for other city-owned hospitals in Brooklyn.

Please help support the overwhelmed front-line staff of an under-funded hospital during this COVID-19 pandemic, as it reaches its peak during the next 3 weeks.
Thank you!Vivian Jackson, Reyana McKenzie, Kimberly Price, Jeannie Jackson, Janine Rodriguez and Celia Weintrob(The Board of the Brooklyn Bridge Rotary Club)
