The NorthShore Glenbrook hospital 4th floor nurses and staff are treating the area's COVID-19 positive patients, 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. Many local restaurants are engaging with the community already. and are willing to give discounts. Call with 24 hr notice to make arrangements. Please know that the food donation must comply with appropriate guidelines to ensure everyone’s safety: • 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 hospital is unable to accept homemade foods— for precautionary measures and for the safety and protection of staff and patients • For safety reasons, instruct the delivery service to deliver the food to the main entrance of the hospital 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! STEPS TO PARTICIPATE: 1.
