As a movement to feed front line healthcare workers at hospitals has swept our country, East Orange General Hospital has been identified as one of the two hospitals in East Orange which remains under-serviced, as other hospitals in Essex County are being provided for by other local organizations. Thanks to the leadership of former JLOSH member, Ava Field Martin, her newly founded organization FLAG (Front Line Appreciation Group) of South Orange and Maplewood, is purchasing complete meals from local SOMA restaurants and distributing them to front line healthcare workers at hospitals in Essex County, NJ.
Understanding that hard work, generosity, and the spirit of voluntarism are needed now more than ever as we navigate these unprecedented circumstances and the uncharted waters ahead, JLOSH will collaborate with FLAG of South Orange and Maplewood to purchase and provide 100 meals a week for the next 4 weeks to feed front line health care workers at East Orange General Hospital in East Orange, NJ. Over the next 4 weeks, we estimate that we will provide 400 meals to healthcare workers at East Orange General Hospital. Now more than ever, we need to show these front line heroes that we are standing with them, and we are supporting all the tireless work they do to ensure the greater health and well-being of East Orange. In addition, our efforts will greatly assist local restaurants and to help them keep their staff employed.
Together we are better. Together we are unstoppable. Together we are New Jersey Strong. Together we are Junior League Strong. #JLStrong.
