Story

Our local Highland Park ER 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 items please. Please sign up by "claiming" a lunch, dinner or either coffee/snack time slots for 25 PEOPLE (doesn't have to be 25! anything will help) and please specify where the delivery will be from and a brief description of what is ordered. 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. NorthShore University Health System sends the following message- "We are grateful for all the food donations provided to our healthcare team through Give In Kind. There has been a wonderful outpouring of support for the hospital staff and it does not go unnoticed. We are truly fortunate to have such a caring community. Everyone at NorthShore is working together for the health and well being of the community during this epidemic. We are one team, and everyone is contributing to the care of all our patients." 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 our entire staff and patients - For your safety, please deliver the food to the main entrance of the hospital listed below. ER folks are not picky, and anything within these guidelines is welcome. For more questions about food donations please email [email protected] STEPS 1.

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 notes below**** 6. Deliveries have to be made at specific times as listed below. 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. 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 https://www.facebook.com/groups/217259053018656/ 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.
