Meal Delivery for
Montefiore Nyack Hospital Staff
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
The state of New York is at the epicenter of our national war against the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the number of cases have doubled in the Rockland County Area. The Piermont Chamber of Commerce and Piermont Civic Association are sponsoring a fundraising campaign, Piermont Provides, to support the Emergency Room, ICU and other Front Line Staff at Montefiore Nyack Hospital during this unprecedented time by providing meals to these people at no cost.
Currently their tasks are overwhelming...they are working around the clock, often without access to nutritious food. Due to the infectiousness of COVID-19 and risks to medical caregivers, the meals must be individually boxed. The hospitals are not accepting "family style" shared dishes.
Furthermore, as personal protection equipment (PPE) is limited, caregivers must spend hours in protective gear without eating. When they finally get a break and get to remove the gear, they are dehydrated and hungry. Our full course meals meet their immediate needs and help them feel supported by our community.
Your donations will also support local businesses impacted by this tragedy, as the meals will be provided by our local restaurants and paid for by your generous donations.
Help contribute to our effort to care for our hospital workers who are bearing the brunt of the battle and the hard- working folks at these local restaurants as they are all united by your contributions during this once-in-a-lifetime crisis.
Please donate during this critical window of need. Any amount helps: $1, $3, $5, $100, $500 or more!
Through the assistance of the Piermont Chamber of Commerce and the Piermont Civic Association, Piermont Provides will continue to broaden awareness and organize our operation. We will announce more on our fundraising plans daily. Please spread the word and check back to this page for updates.
Please email the Piermont Chamber of Commerce at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to help with our outreach to news media or if you want to volunteer or know of any organizations or individuals in need.
All donations are tax deductible.
We're so grateful to you for your generosity and trust!
