HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

It is not always easy to support those who are suffering. It takes a lot of emotional energy to care for the sick, the homeless, those out of work, and people in need of basic necessities. By reminding those who do this important work every day that they are remembered and appreciated, you can help make this challenging time a little easier for those on the frontlines in our communities.

DESCRIPTION

Along with healthcare workers, many nonprofits and their staffs are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic caring for clients and vulnerable populations. You can say thank you by sending lunch, cookies, or a care package to let them know they are cared for and appreciated!


ITEMS NEEDED

  4. Decide what you like to send - maybe a catered lunch, a cookie platter or a care package with homemade cards and notes to say "Thank you!"
  5. Contact the organization to make sure they don't have any delivery restrictions during COVID-19 and to make sure they can use what you plan to send (especially if you are planning to send something like lunch on a specific day).
  6. Follow-up and deliver, as promised, on the date you planned and know you will bring smiles to workers in the middle of a long day!
