SupplyPike is showing its appreciation for the hard workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic at Washington Regional Medical Center.
SupplyPike has decided to provide a week’s worth of lunches to the essential staff at the local hospital for 175 workers, all directly or indirectly involved with COVID-19 patients. The employees are in the following departments:
- Intensive Care Unit (ICU)
- Emergency Center
- Screening Clinic
- Materials Management
The lunches come from the local bakery and deli Stone Mill Bread Company on Gregg Avenue in Fayetteville. The restaurant is open for curbside pickup, as well as delivery through Waitr, Grubhub, and Bitesquad.
“We are extremely grateful for the work and sacrifice that the doctors, nurses, and essential employees of Washington Regional are putting in during this difficult time,” says Christine Tan, Senior Director of Operations and Administration of SupplyPike. “SupplyPike always tries to support our community, be it Fayetteville or Northwest Arkansas. We are humbled by this opportunity to play a small part in giving back. We decided to buy these meals from a local restaurant to help our local businesses that have also been affected by this pandemic.”
Lunch will be served all this week between 11:00 AM and 11:30 AM. Each lunch will be individually wrapped and served according to the hospital’s food safety regulations.
