Just over one week ago, we began collecting donations to help pay for boxed meals to show love & APPRECIATION for the real heroes in the craziness of this virus pandemic -- our local healthcare workers!
While we started small, this system grew FAST. Since starting 8 days ago, we have already delivered 542 meals to staff at Mission Hospital, Advent Health, and Pardee!
We need YOUR help to keep this rolling - and we are so grateful to everyone who has supported this effort so far! We feel extremely humbled and appreciative to both support our small business, as well as make sure those on the frontlines fighting this virus receive the nourishment and appreciation that they SO deserve.
We are accepting donations via Venmo (@Jill-Wasilewski) or by check sent to Ivory Road LLC at 1854 Brevard Road, Arden NC 28704.
$8 provides a meal for one worker, $260 provides meals for a whole unit - and we appreciate anything in between, too! Even if you can't donate right now, please share our Facebook posts to help widen our reach, bit by bit!
A huge thank you and virtual hug must go to our friend Jen Breslin who started this whole thing, and has been vital in organizing from day #1. An even bigger thank you to those who are helping us make this happen: Sam and Chris Kronberg, owners of Foggy Mountain Brewpub and The Med in downtown AVL have stepped in to help us feed more workers for both day and night shifts, 7 days a week. They are preparing at least 240 meals per week! Also, our friend Jamie Wade, of Sand Hill Kitchen in Candler, is also donating her time and resources to provide meals to Mission Hospital this week -- THANK YOU! Last but not least, thank you to Asheville Rooftop Bar Tours for helping us with transportation and donating their time and resources as well.
TOGETHER we will get through this, but in the meantime: THANK YOU for helping us make this world a little bit brighter place, meal by meal <3
