JACKSONVILLE, April 6, 2020 - In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Blessing Others All the Time (BOATT) announced their mission is expanding to support the Hospital Heroes of Northeast Florida. It takes a lot of coordination, but the goal is simple: order food from our struggling local restaurants & caterers to send to the front-line workers.
A great way to share our support for the incredible work of our Hospital Heroes as they fight the good fight against COVID-19. BOATT seeks to boost morale for the Hospital Heroes working testing sites, ERs, and COVID-19 hospital patient care facilities through “food love”. Staff includes doctors, nurses, techs, clerks, housekeeping, radiology, security and other COVID-19-unit workers contributing towards saving lives. BOATT will provide coverage among the four counties: Clay, Duval, Nassau, and St. John’s for the COVID-19 related work areas. Additionally, the outreach will also extend to the first responders.
"We are grateful for the opportunity to bless the health care community as we all continue to adapt to the escalating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic," said Sheila Jefferson, chief executive officer of Blessing Others All the Time. "It is gratifying to be able to now offer the Feed the Front-Line program for health care workers who are making tremendous personal sacrifices to be on the frontlines treating patients, while helping our service industry sustain."
As many businesses and personal donors are now turning to community partners to provide support to our Hospital Heroes – BOATT is ready to help and has a unique opportunity to assist with charitable donation receipts. Additionally, the virtual volunteer team will assist with logistics of restaurant ordering.
As BOATT continues to provide help and resources for the homeless and under-served, we look forward to expanding our mission to the Hospital Heroes of Northeast Florida.
