Be an Angel for the Families of Our Healthcare Heroes
Healthcare's unsung heroes - respiratory therapists, emergency room techs, nursing assistants, cleaning staff and transporters - are leaving their families every day, risking infection and going to the frontlines to care for us, our families and our communities.
These brave men and women help to ensure hospitals can provide care to those in need.
They are sacrificing. They are leaving behind their kids while they work extra shifts; sleeping in the garage to make sure they don't expose their families; unable to bring groceries to their parents because they’re exhausted. They are unwilling to walk into grocery stores because they don’t want to infect others.
We want them to know that we appreciate them - plus make life a bit easier for them and their families – by providing each family with a $100 gift card to order meals at local restaurants.
A DoorDash gift card can be used to order a meal by a family sheltering in place at home, while their loved ones work the frontlines. Your support will directly impact a family in need. This is a philanthropic effort. Funds raised will be used to provide gift certificates to healthcare workers and their families during the COVID-19 crisis.
DoorDash will provide a 10% match on donations made through Jan 31st, in the form of gift cards.* You can help, today, by donating to this fund. Any donation, large or small, is greatly appreciated.
Now is the time to come together and support those workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis who are taking care of all of us.
A collaboration between Service Employees International Union-United Healthcare Workers West representing healthcare workers; Big Sunday, a non-profit organization; DoorDash, and Ordermark.
*For every ten $100 gift cards purchased through this campaign, DoorDash will donate an additional $100 gift card through January 31, 2021.
