The Redmond Rotary Foundation has agreed to match another $1,000, so I'm increasing our goal to $2,000 to reach the new matched amount.
Thank you to those of you who donated to this cause! We stood up for something we believed was important and helped hospital workers going through very difficult times while they treated the rush of COVID-19 patients. Action matters! They heard us, and are grateful.
Please help us help the helpers.
The Rotary Club of Redmond has been serving people in need both locally and across the globe for 50 years. The medical community serving COVID-19 patients at hospitals are in a tough spot as the number of patients continues to increase. As a show of support, we are organizing a campaign to deliver boxed meals to hospitals sourced by the following outstanding catering businesses.
Shawn O'Donnell's American Grill and Irish Pub in Seattle/Everett/Spokane.
As of April 6th, this campaign has donated 180 meals to Evergreen Hospital thanks to your donations and a $1,000 matching donation from Redmond Rotary Foundation.
Hospital workers are working very hard to treat severe COVID-19 flu patients in a high stress environment where extra measures and protective gear are required to keep them safe and prevent further spreading within the hospital. Their workload is expected to increase over the next few weeks. This is your chance to support them through what is likely going to be a rough 3+ week period.
Your donations are tax deductible given that our foundation is a registered 501(C) Corporation.
They can force us to stay at home, but they can't stop us from finding ways to make a difference by helping people fighting this virus on the front line.
