We raised more than $65,000. We delivered almost 9,000 meals. YOU stepped up and made it happen. Thank you to our partners @UFT @sichamber led by Mike Mulgrew and Linda Baran respectively.
Much gratitude to all. #FeedingOurFrontlines
Borough President James S. Oddo has partnered with the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce, the United Federation of Teachers and local restaurants and caterers for an initiative, “Feeding Our Frontline.”
“Feeding Our Frontline” will provide grab & go meals to hospital staffs at Staten Island University Hospital (both the North and South campuses) and Richmond University Medical Center.
To kick of the program, the Borough President, the United Federation of Teachers, Community Television, and the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce have donated over $15,000 to feed hospital staff, partnering with local restaurants and caterers who have stepped up to provide meals at $7 per meal. We provide 1400 meals at each mealtime.
Additionally, the collaborative is making it possible for community partners and members of the community to contribute as well. The Staten Island Chamber of Commerce will gladly accept donations for the food on their web site. Anyone who wishes may make a donation to help feed our dedicated hospital staff should click here.
Thank you and Stay Well!
