COVID-19 Frontline Support
Giving back to those who give to us.
We’re committed to supporting those who serve our communities, especially in the face of hardship.
The COVID-19 pandemic has placed an incredible amount of stress on all, including our local business owners and frontline responders working tirelessly day-in and day-out as the backbone of our country’s pandemic response.
Fuel the Frontline COVID-19 community initiative
The goal of our initiative was twofold – to support our local businesses and to provide comforting meals to our frontline heroes.
We purchased meals from our Select Employer Groups (SEGs) and business members in the restaurant industry, providing them with a much-needed income stream via weekly food delivery orders.
Delivery to local first responders
In collaborate with these local businesses, our teams delivered the hearty meals to local first responders, including medical providers, police, and emergency departments.
The impact we made on local first responders
Our Fuel the Frontline meal deliveries occurred twice per week.
Through our initiative, we purchased nearly$21,000
worth of meals from our SEG and business partners.
We delivered over1,750
meals to those on the frontlines of the pandemic.
