Lunches for Clinicians-St. Louis

About Lunches for Clinicians-St. Louis:

COVID-19 has upended all of our lives in unimaginable ways, but we remain hopeful because of the heroes on the front lines who continue to work everyday — the doctors, nurses, clinical and ancillary support staff caring for patients and assisting with hospital operations. In addition, Missouri and Illinois
restaurants and small businesses are facing mandated closures, requiring their operations to close or adjust to curbside pickup/delivery in order to keep business afloat. Our community partners are struggling and our healthcare workers are faced with high stress and low morale.

This why we want to come together. One community. One mission. One purpose.  We want to work with local restaurants and businesses to provide nourishment in the form of meals, coffee or services to lift the spirits of those working tirelessly save lives during this pandemic.

We'd love your help reaching our goal of $5,000 over the next 30 days. How far can we go with $5,000?
---around 500 lunches
---300 pizzas
---2,000 bagels or pastries
---1,000 coffees 
---8,000 lbs of bananas

All funds raised will go towards supporting our small businesses and healthcare workers in the St. Louis metropolitan area. 

Oh...and Let's Go Blues!

Lunches for Clinicians-St. Louis was created as an extension of the Denver based Lunches for Clinicians movement. We connected with the successful Denver team, received unbelievable support and have worked to tailor our approach to best meet the needs of our community.

All meals/beverages will be purchased through a Lunches for Clinicians team member and be reimbursed through the gofundme account via withdrawal to the personal bank account of Bailey Shafer and reimbursed to paying team member. Receipts are saved and reimbursed for no more than the transaction amount.
