Loudoun Chamber Launches “Feeding Loudoun’s Health Care Heroes” Campaign
 
Loudoun businesses and residents can show nurses, doctors, other local hospital employees how much they appreciate their sacrifices during the COVID-19 crisis by buying them lunch
 
 
Loudoun County, VA – The Loudoun Chamber today launched the “Feeding Loudoun’s Health Care Heroes” campaign, providing local businesses and residents an opportunity to thank area hospital employees for their efforts during the COVID-19 crisis by buying them lunch.
 
“America’s health care workers are on the front lines every day, risking their safety to care for those afflicted with the devastating coronavirus. Many Loudoun Chamber members have asked us how they can show their appreciation for these heroes, so we launched “Feeding Loudoun’s Health Care Heroes,” so they could simply buy lunch for our hard-working nurses, doctors and other front-line health care workers,” said Loudoun Chamber President Tony Howard.
 
The Loudoun Chamber established a web site (feedourheroes.loudounchamber.org) and a GoFundMe page for the “Feed Loudoun’s Health Care Heroes” campaign (https://feedourheroes.loudounchamber.org/). Every $10 donated will pay for a delivered lunch for one health care worker.
 
100% of all donations will go to buy lunch for workers at Inova Loudoun Hospital and Stone Springs Hospital Center. The meals will be prepared, packaged, and delivered —following strict safety protocols— to our health care heroes by Chamber-member restaurants.
 
“There are hundreds of health care workers between Inova Loudoun Hospital and Stone Springs Hospital Center, each one of them making a valuable contribution to help our community defeat the deadly COVID-19. The rest of us can show these health care heroes how much we  appreciate all they are doing, and all they are sacrificing, to keep our families safe by just simply buying them lunch. Please help us Feed Our Health Care Heroes,” Howard added.
