Looking for a way to help others during the COVID-19 pandemic? Join the National Press Club’s Help The Heroes program today and let front-line healthcare workers know you’ve got their back!
Front-line health workers – including nurses, midwives, community health workers, doctors, pharmacists and others – provide care directly to their communities. But while they put their lives on the line to help fight a battle in the hospital they also face challenges at home: meals are skipped for the sake of time, and schedules have adversely impacted their ability to function at peak.
Help The Heroes is designed to ensure that hospital workers can obtain freshly made to-go meals as they leave work, guaranteeing they have food in a timely, convenient and safe way. The program recognizes that communities of color are often the most-impacted by COVID-19, so by helping workers at Howard University Hospital, we are bringing aid where it is needed most.
Contributions to the Help The Heroes Fund will enable us to serve so many! But we need your help. Your personal gift of $50 ensures a hard-working nurse one fresh meal each day for a week. Your company’s donation of $5,000 provides 500 meals to Howard University Hospital workers. Our goal is to deliver 300 meals per day until a vaccine is available and/or hospital capacities return to pre-pandemic levels.
