Supporting Healthcare Support Staff

It’s no secret COVID-19 is affecting each and every one of us. We are raising funds to donate grocery items to those providing essential services  behind the scenes at MemorialCare Long Beach Medical Center*. This includes janitorial staff, laundry services, housekeeping and administration staff members and their families. We specifically want to support non-frontline workers because many of these positions are working with much lower pay and limited recognition. 
 
Timeline:  
April 13 - $1,000 Goal  
April 15 – Grocery shopping  
April 17 – First donation and grocery pop-up!  

If you’d like to donate directly via Venmo (no fee), you can send to @stdao with the description “#SupportingSupportStaff”.  

TLDR: Donate and share so, together, we can help support valued healthcare support staff and their families during these challenging times. @SupportingSupportStaff  #SupportingSupportStaff || Inspired by: #lunchesforicu 

NOTE: We are not a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Please consult your own tax professional regarding tax deductible donations. We are just a couple of locals trying to support locals. <3 

*We are not affiliated with MemorialCare or Long Beach Medical Center, and we’re not fundraising on their behalf – we just want to help out the support staff at the hospital during this difficult time.

Stay healthy, stay safe, stay home. Thank you!
