Cotton Foundation Thanks Our Health Heroes by Delivering Meals to Healthcare Workers
April 15, 2020
Cotton Foundation would like to thank every healthcare professional for their hard work and selfless attitude during these trying times. Your ability to care for others and bring them hope and a smile, even on the longest of shifts, is admirable and truly appreciated.
These past couple of months have reminded us all how valuable and courageous healthcare workers really are. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, our nation’s doctors, nurses, and medical staff have worked relentlessly to care for their patients and keep our communities safe.
Cotton Foundation is committed to supporting our healthcare heroes and the community as we come together to end this global pandemic. To show our appreciation, Cotton Foundation, in partnership with Cotton Global Disaster Solutions, Cotton Logistics, and Cotton Culinary, delivered approximately 5,000 fresh lunches to healthcare workers and frontline heroes in Austin, Houston, and Dallas, TX. Other companies also participated in our initiative by donating thousands of pre-packaged snacks, beverages, and personal protective equipment.
Over the course of three days, Cotton Foundation and the Cotton Holdings subsidiaries visited Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas, St. David’s Medical Center, and St. David’s Medical Center South Austin during lunch hours. It was a pleasure serving the heroes on the frontlines and getting to share a good, joyful moment with them during their break.
Following a successful week in Austin, the team headed to Houston to continue our efforts. This time, we expanded our outreach to not only include healthcare professionals but also patients and their families, as well as frontline workers at the largest food bank in the nation.
We successfully distributed meals to CHI St. Luke’s Health, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Texas Children’s Hospital, Memorial Hermann Hospital, and Houston Food Bank.
With the help of our sponsors and partners, Cotton Foundation was able to continue our initiative by serving the Dallas/Ft. Worth community. In just a few days, we delivered over 800 meals to workers at Baylor UMC and Baylor Scott & White. We also partnered with Sysco and delivered products to Resource Center’s food pantry to help with their efforts in the community.
We are thankful for the opportunity to support our community and give back to those who are keeping us safe. We are grateful to the people and organizations that helped make this happen.
Help us continue our efforts in supporting our frontline heroes by making your gift today. You’ll be helping us inspire hope and generosity in a time when our community needs it most. Stay safe everyone.
