The Rotary Club of Griffin utilized funds that were not spent on meeting meals to provide a meal to all of the 463 local Wellstar Hospital staff and 20 Emergency 911 personnel. Lunch was provided to the 263 day shift employees and 207 dinners were provided to the 207 evening shift employees. The club used the catering service that provides our meeting meals and this project enabled them to stay in business and pay their employees; some who had been out of work. This also helped our catering service.
Spalding Regional Hospital with over 470 hot lunches prepared by Touch of Grace Catering in Griffin. The lunches were an incredible treat for staff, working again under extraordinary conditions due to the recent sharp rise in Covid cases. And the chapter was also proud to provide the meals and support one of our own local businesses.
Hospital President Tamara Ison wished to “extend my sincerest appreciation to everyone with Rotary of Griffin for treating our hospital team members to such a special lunch. Your continued support, and generosity, demonstrates what makes our community great, and the uniting support will be what helps us all get through this pandemic together. COVID-19 has tested our hospital, our health system and our community in ways we have never experienced, yet you are rising to the challenge.”
