We are completing this campaign with a total of 790 meals delivered to the healthcare workers in 9 different hospitals over the course of two weeks. We raised a total of $7,173.32 ($3,331 from Facebook fundraiser) in just about 4 days and spent $7,307.50 during the campaign period--we’ve overspent by $134.18.
Many of our partner restaurants joined us to support the cause and donated their meals or voluntarily offered us a meaningful discount. We paid for 530 meals at $13.79 per serving on average, healthy meals that could easily cost up to $20 per serving in normal days.
While these numbers look great, they are still not enough to fully describe the inspirational, invigorating experiences we’ve all had for the last couple of weeks. Here’s one quote of several thank-you notes we received:
“I want to extend my sincere thanks to you and the Bay Area K Group for the generous lunch donation. Our team of anesthesiologists, surgeons, nurses, and technicians has been working non-stop to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. We appreciate your recognition, and we will continue to fulfill our mission with full stomachs and full hearts!”
As mentioned before, we are committed to keeping this great momentum. The 2nd campaign will begin this weekend with the goal to provide the healthcare workers with more sustainable meal support. We will also try to expand our help for more beneficiaries, such as seniors in our community who are now more isolated or special needs families with no more regular lunch programs they can rely on.
Again, thank you very much for your warm support that made all of this happen. And please stay tuned! :)
