DONATING MEALS TO SENIORS
I have to admit that I like this story.
COVID-19 has brought out the best in many restaurant brands, including Islands Burgers as the burger chain is asking the public to help them ensure residents at local senior citizen centers receive regular meals. For a limited time, every Islands location will donate one free meal directly to a local senior citizen center when an adult entrée is purchased through curbside pickup or takeout.
“This crisis has created many segments within our communities that are in desperate need of support,” said President Michael Smith. “One segment that the crisis has impacted severely is our elderly population. Constantly evolving mandates and regulations have made it extremely difficult for this group to get groceries and meals. That’s why we are doing what we can to help make sure that they receive regular meals. We will get through this crisis by helping each other, and showing compassion and understanding for everyone in our communities.
“As with the entire restaurant industry, we are struggling to keep our doors open and our team employed,” continued Smith. “We believe this offer will not only help our community and our guests, but it will enable us to try and keep as many of our team members employed. We are doing everything possible to weather this massive storm and stay in business so we can bring back all of our dedicated team members. We ask for everyone’s support during this unprecedented time.”
Good going Islands.
