Many people have reached out to help the Highland Park Emergency room, we set up this page to give people an opportunity to help through this trying time. Because of the Shelter in place, it is not advisable to come to the hospital. If you would like to help, anything is appreciated, meals and snacks is what most people have been sending. Thank you for your continued support, we will all get through this. Steps 1) Select date/time of your choice by clicking "claim" to commit to sponsoring a breakfast, lunch, dinner or coffee/snack time slot 2) QUANTITY- meals for 25 PEOPLE ( doesn't have to be 25! anything will help) 3) You pick any local restaurant of your choice to place your order and utilize either their delivery service or Grub Hub/Uber Eats/Door Dash. 4) In your claimed spot, please specify where your delivery will be from and a brief description of what is ordered- this is very helpful for the hospital so they know what to expect. 5) Work with the restaurant and delivery person to provide them with specific instructions on where to deliver and the number to call ahead of the delivery-****see special note below**** 6) Please note when calling to place your order please mention that you are donating your meal as we have found many restaurants are providing some type of discount for your good deed! ER folks are not picky, and anything is welcomed. The Northshore Team sent us this UPDATED message regarding their RULES & GUIDELINES: Food must only come from restaurants Food must be individually wrapped and sealed-no small or large family-style tin pans, pizza is an exception Food must not contain nuts or nut products While we greatly appreciate the gesture, we are unable to accept homemade goods. This is also a chance to support our local restaurants and delivery drivers. We understand that during this uncertain time this is a substantial financial ask so we hope that people create small groups to help spread the cost. Also, please keep your receipts and check with your accountants/tax preparers to find out if you can utilize this as a tax deductible donation. We are doing our part by staying home, but this is one small thing we can do as a community to mobilize behind those that must go to work to help our communities.
