With the total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in California breaking 30,000, many hospitals in the greater Los Angeles area are stretching their employees thin. Medical staff members are working 10+ hour shifts and don’t have enough time to take a break, let alone have a proper meal.
Hearing this, one of our local restaurant partners, Nairi Restaurant and Deli [located at 5075 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90027], offered to donate over 60 meals for some of these local heroes fighting on the front lines. Nairi Restaurant is long known in the local community as an outstanding banquet hall for any occasion. The venue is also famous and loved for its catering services. Nairi offers takeout and delivery orders during these trying times, like many others.
To match Nairi’s astounding generosity, we decided to donate 2000 surgical masks as many hospitals have been struggling with shortages. These donations arrived around lunchtime on April 20th to a delighted shift at Kaiser Permanente in Hollywood, California. After witnessing the joy of these healthcare workers, we’ve decided to extend an open invitation to any restaurants in the greater Los Angeles area.
If you own or operate a restaurant and would like to donate meals to these heroic individuals, please reach out to us via email at [email protected] or use the online donation form. Currently, we are reaching out to Hospitals servicing the highest numbers of COVID-19 patients and offering these donations. We will continue to donate surgical masks with every meal donation that is made.
