Our local ER and Clinical Support Staff are working tirelessly to keep us all safe while we are staying home to keep them safe. Let's give back and help fuel them with meals at this critical time. This is also a chance to support our local restaurants and delivery drivers. STAY HOME AND HEALTHY, and ORDER MEALS to be DELIVERED to WEISS! Please use the CALENDAR below to CLAIM the day you (or your group) would like to provide a lunch or dinner to Weiss front line staff. Once claimed, please indicate HOW MANY meals you are able to provide and the name of the restaurant you would like to arrange to have the food delivered from. (THE CALENDAR BELOW IS JUST A WAY TO RESERVE THE DAY YOU WOULD LIKE TO CLAIM). While we suggest you (OR YOU AND A GROUP) purchase 25 meals—ANY amount of meals will help!
