COVID Meal Delivery Program
OUR STAFF: STRUGGLING TO MEET THE LATEST SURGE
From top to bottom, senior physicians to nurses to technicians and support teams, our hospital and staff is engaged like no other time in our history. The Omicron variant of COVID has again turned up the heat of this pandemic to a blaze and our staff members are exhausted. What you are hearing in the news about hospital staffing and resource shortages is also true at Bridgeport. Morale is under pressure, because of the daily and relentless onslaught of new patients.
THE FOUNDATION’S PLAN TO SUPPORT THE STAFF
During the first wave of COVID in March 2020, we initiated a meal delivery program that provided food to every department from local restaurants. We are re-launching the meal program to show our gratitude to our staff. We order the meals directly from local restaurants who are glad to have the business. They give us a “good deal,” and we pay for the meals with donations from generous people like you. Fifty dollars provides a meal for eight staff members - allowing them to remain on their patient care units and get a brief and nourishing respite from their hard work. From the feedback we have received since we resumed the program last month, we know everyone has welcomed and greatly appreciated receiving these meals.
IT’S YOUR TURN - HERE IS HOW YOU CAN HELP -
This is a critical time. We are in the fourth wave of the greatest public health emergency of our lifetimes. We need to recognize our frontline staff and let them know they are loved, valued, and that we stand with them during this extraordinarily difficult time.
Please give whatever you can to help sustain our courageous and compassionate Bridgeport Hospital staff. You may never personally meet all of the people you will help, but in your heart you will know, when you hear or read about Bridgeport Hospital, you have made a direct and positive impact on them.
