Our Michigan Medicine ICU staff (doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, nursing assistants, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, etc.) are at the heart of the COVID-19 front lines, 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. STEPS 1) Select date/time of your choice by clicking "claim" to commit to sponsoring a lunch, dinner or coffee/snack time slots 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. 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 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**** Make sure to indicate to the restaurant or delivery service that delivery must be made directly to the main entrance (1500 E Medical Center Dr, Ann Arbor) at the specified time and to the attention of the specific ICU unit for the food donation. (4D ICU, 5D ICU, 6D ICU, 7D ICU, 8D, CVC4 ICU, CVC5 ICU, and TBICU) 6) Deliveries have to be made at specific times as listed below. 7) 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! The Michigan Medicine Hospital staff are so appreciative and anything is welcome. The Michigan Medicine 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 the exception Food must not contain nuts or nut products; While we greatly appreciate the gesture, we are unable to accept homemade goods. --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! Thank you so much for contributing during this difficult time and please visit our Facebook Page "GiveInKind Meals for Michigan Area COVID-19 Healthcare Workers"
***DUE TO DELIVERIES BEING UNABLE TO GO INSIDE, the driver should drive to the front/main entrance and security will call up to the specific ICU you chose to let them know their Give In Kind delivery has arrived! The delivery personal will then be directed to the ICU main entrance, and we take it from there. Make sure to indicate to the restaurant or delivery service that delivery must be made directly to the main entrance (1500 E Medical Center Dr, Ann Arbor) at the specified time and to the attention of the selected Intensive Care Unit. Please make sure to indicate the specific ICU unit for the food donation to the restaurant/delivery service since there are 8 different ICU units at Michigan Medicine and we want your generous donations to go to the right destination in the hospital. **Please understand as the situation continues to evolve, hospitals will be regularly updating their policies, delivery instructions and time slots. If you claim a slot in the future PLEASE MAKE SURE to check back just before delivery for updated instructions! *On our Facebook page, you may find restaurants that have committed to offering special discounts to be used when ordering for a hospital. Please reach out if you are a restaurant owner and would like to participate.
