I am raising money to off set the costs of the 2 gift baskets I made for Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune's housekeeper's yearly Chrsitamas party from personal expenses and also additional l money to go towards the cost of the dinner for 60+ housekeepers at Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune.
The baskets are Halloween themed and targeted as a feminine basket - mostly beauty products or gender neutral - mostly a do-it-yourself tool basket. Each basket cost approximately $65 with items from Bath and Body Works, Victoria Secret, Lowes and Walmart. I would like to have $120 go to my my personal contribution for the cause and all other funds for the Christmas dinner.
The usual dinner is from Smithfield's BBQ and Chicken, although, quite delicious, portions are minimal compared to an all you-can-eat cafeteria downstairs, that only 1st and 2nd shift can enjoy due to their operating hours and 3rd shift schedule. Covid may have affected the all-you-can-eat abilities but in previous times the option was available for no more than $6.
I want to show appreciation to the housekeepers for sticking through COVID 19, as essential employees, whom did not receive any additional compensation or benefits for continuing to work. They did not receive pay for quarantine whikst awaiting COVID 19 test results or for mandatory 2 week self-quarentine sessions.
I would like addionaly funds to be considered for an elegant dinner, full of appreciation for those who stuck it through, by keeping the hospital operational in hygiene and command standards.
My only goal is to show the overdue appreciation for these people who put their lives on the line for their livelihood. I wanted to take this opportunity to give back to those who sacrificed many uncertain days of exposure for little to no recognition.
Thank you Naval Medical Center Housekeeping staff.
Your services are well appreciated to not only myself but from every patient, individual and staff member that have walked through the doors, unscathed by COVID 19.
