Support local businesses while thanking our Flatiron/NoMad first repsonders! Help the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership fund delivery orders from neighborhood restaurants and deliver them to our local first responders, who are still being heavily impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
We are committing an initial $10,000 to kick-start this program, and then we will match every donation $1 for $1 up to $10,000. We're setting our goal at $5K, but hope to blow past it to reach $10K and maximize our match.
Starting Monday, May 4th, the Flatiron Partnership is buying meals at Flatiron and NoMad-based restaurants to deliver to the first responders that are there for us every day. We are buying 115 meals daily to deliver to the EMS Station at Bellevue Hospital, two local FDNY Stations, and the NYPD 13th Precinct. If we maximize our match, we will be able to continue the daily food deliveries for the full month of May.
While doing so, we are supporting our much-loved neighborhood restaurants by purchasing the meals at a price that allows them to generate revenue. They're working hard to keep their doors open providing takeout and delivery, and are thrilled to provide these meals for our EMS, Fire and Police.
[UPDATE: We hit our $5K goal on May 14 and now hope to hit $10K by the end of May to maximize our dollar-for-dollar match!]
