Supporting those battling COVID19

4/2/2020 - 8:40:01 AM

Most of us have experienced a difficult day or situation in which, after glancing at the clock for the fifth time in a minute, sighed and were grateful that five o'clock had arrived. Today some of us are furloughed or laid off and have no work, we don't know when we'll go back to work, or if there will be work to go back to.  The clock tends to creep through those days too.

Others are experiencing heavy demands on their time and in their responsibilities.  Five o'clock comes and the situation only intensifies. The pressure, and the decisions, and the personal danger increases.  Loved ones wait at home, but the battle goes on, with little thought of rest or a break.

Plain Compassion Crisis Response, along with many of us, is recognizing the incredible sacrifice and commitment of First Responders, EMTs, and hospital staff, etc.  We desire to provide that encouraging word and a quick, nutritious lunch in that moment when a health worker may need it most.  Thousands of health professionals are putting their lives on the line as they care for, and fight for the lives of those sick from a deadly, invisible enemy.

We invite you to partner with us as we mobilize to package and distribute lunch boxes.  Some will be able to provide time, some money; some a little, some a lot.  But together we can provide encouragement that will uplift and enable a health worker to face a few more hours.  

Our current fund-raising goal is to enable the packaging and distribution of 4,000 lunches for the first week(s).  We recognize that the opportunity is far greater and are preparing to scale if enough of you partner with us in this.  We are grateful for food distributors and others who are supplying first-quality food and goods at below market value (sometimes free)  so that a nutritious lunch may be offered for great value.  

Will you help us reach our $30,000 goal for this week?

May God bless each of you as you look for ways to serve within your communities.
