We, like you, have been thinking of how hard our community has been hit by COVID-19; from schools, to houses of worship, to mom-and-pop restaurants and shops like our own– we are truly in this together.
Our first responders- police, fire, EMTs, and the brave people staffing the two hospitals right in our backyards– are risking their lives daily tackling COVID-19 head-on.
So, how happy were we when we came across FLAG of Somerset – (Front Line Appreciation Group). Started just one week ago, the Facebook group already has over 1000 members. Their goal is to band together to get food from local restaurants that are financially hurting and help feed the front line staff at St Peter’s and RWJ. It’s a way to help our community two-fold.
Even though our doors are closed, we are still very much invested in our community. That’s why we’re setting a goal to send the Front Line hospital staff a warm dinner. We pledge to match your donation dollar-for-dollar until we reach our goal. No matter how small or large your donation is, every bit helps. You can venmo: venusjewelers or contact us below on web chat for any other payment method.
UPDATE: Goal for one meal met in just a matter of hours! We decided to match all donations received even beyond our goal for a grand total of $750 that will go to FLAG. Any donations received here on out will still 100% be donated, so keep it coming! We’ll donate the final amount tonight at 10 pm.
