STORY: The ManorCare at Arlington Heights 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, thus NO HOME COOKED MEALS, please. • Food must come from restaurants only and must be individually wrapped and sealed—no large tin family-style pans. Pizza is the ONLY exception • Food must not contain nuts or nut products • The facility is unable to accept homemade foods— for precautionary measures and for the safety and protection of our entire staff and patients • For your safety, please deliver the food to the main entrance of the facility listed below. 1) Select date/time of your choice by clicking "claim" to commit to sponsoring a breakfast, lunch, or dinner time slot. 2) WEEKDAY QUANTITY - Breakfast shifts are for 15 PEOPLE Lunch shifts are for 50 PEOPLE Dinner shifts are for 25 PEOPLE (Doesn’t have to be 25-50! Anything will help). WEEKEND QUANTITY - Breakfast shifts are for 15 PEOPLE Lunch shifts are for 30 PEOPLE Dinner shifts are for 20 PEOPLE 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. NO PERSONAL DELIVERIES. NO GIFT CARDS. 4) In your claimed spot please specify where the delivery will be from and a brief description of what is ordered - this is very helpful for the facility, so they know what to expect. 5) Make sure to indicate to the restaurant or delivery service that delivery must be made at the specified time, to the specified location detailed below in special notes, and in compliance with all the guidelines listed herein. 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!
