1. Thanks to your support, 100 packaged hot meals were delivered at St. Vincent Hospital Indianapolis this noon.
2. Children's Eyes on the Globe also donated 5,000 surgical masks, 200 face shields and 200 protective glasses to St. Vincent Hospital Indianapolis today.
We are raising funds to provide meals to healthcare heroes who are on the frontline working to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic in Indianapolis.
In this fight against COVID-19, frontline workers are experiencing high demand and high stress. They are working long hours and double shifts. They are facing life and death every day. They are right on the frontline of the pandemic, working tirelessly to save lives while putting themselves in danger. Here in Indianapolis, our healthcare heroes have been fighting and protecting us for the past few weeks.
A simple, hot meal and a warm encouragement is what we could offer to help them keep going after another long and tiring shift. With all of us in communities coming together to help each other, “Everything Will Be OK.”
What are we going to do?
We will begin to provide over 100 individually packaged hot dinners for doctors and nurses working in the ICUs at Ascension St. Vincent Hospital Indianapolis on Friday, April 17. This hospital is located in Marion County—the county with most deaths and most confirmed cases in Indiana.
Your support is needed to help bring hot meals to more healthcare staff at local hospitals in Indianapolis.
One simple meal
= more time to focus on patients
= more strength to persevere and endure in order to save lives
= a huge thank from all of us to our healthcare heroes
= a word of encouragement telling them that they are not alone in this fight
We are partnering with a local restaurant that will prepare all meals at a very low cost and will match all donations at 10%.
Who are we?
Children’s Eyes on the Globe (CEG) is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit based in Indiana that helps children of different backgrounds in local communities gain cultural competence and be better prepared for the increasingly diverse world through educational and cultural exchanges.
During the current COVID-19 outbreak, CEG has brought nearly 200 packages of household hygiene and cleaning products to fellow Hoosiers in need served by the Mary Rigg Neighborhood Center since mid-March. In partnership with several other local organizations, CEG has also brought over 26,000 masks and other personal protective equipment to healthcare professionals and first responders at 29 hospitals and clinics, 4 senior living communities, 2 local police departments, 1 fire department and 1 post office.
How can you help?
Make a donation to help feed more healthcare heroes in Indianapolis. Every dollar counts!
100% of your donation will go directly towards the purchase of food for the meals. CEG’s wonderful volunteers will deliver meals to the hospital. As donations come in, we will share updates and the impact of your gifts here and on our website (http://www.childrenseyesontheglobe.org/).
Thank you for joining us to thank these amazing heroes for serving on the frontlines of this pandemic and protecting our communities!
