We hope this e-newsletter finds you and your family well as we all continue to adjust to the changing times.
We have some good news to share! Thanks to a grant from the
Martin Richard Foundation,
we have launched a program as part of our Toss-A-Line efforts to help others that we call
"Sailing Heals Meals."
Sailing Heals Meals not only helps hospital workers but it also helps local restaurants.
Last night, working with the excellent team at Salem GNU Kitchen, (see our new GNU friends above) we made our first delivery of 350 meals to the night shift at North Shore Medical Center, Salem Campus in Salem, MA!
The meals were received with gratitude, excitement and even a few tears by medical staff! Here's just one testimonial:
"Omg!!!!! Thank you!!! Getting the call last night at work for a special dinner from you literally brought tears to my eyes!!! Thank you!!!! Nights never gets included or remembered in treats or special thank you donations. YOU made sure to remember us. As charge RN, the staff & I from E2 want you to know how appreciative we were for recognizing all our efforts." 😷💕😷 - Melanie Velleco
