Gary Sinise Foundation Donates 20,000 Meals to VA Hospital Staff for Coronavirus Relief
The Gary Sinise Foundation, founded by actor and avid supporter of U.S. military veterans and their families Gary Sinise, has donated 20,000 meals to VA hospitals to help the coronavirus recovery efforts.
“Donations like this mean a lot to our VA staff as they are on the front lines of caring for our nation’s veterans every day,” VA Secretary Robert Wilkie said in a press release. “We are very appreciative of this donation during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
The VA noted that it would distribute the food donations among 80 VA facilities.
“The donated meals will come from restaurants near these facilities, stimulating local economies and helping communities,” said Elizabeth Fields, Chief Operating Officer of the Gary Sinise Foundation. “Up to 250 meals will be donated to each facility depending on size and need.”
The Gary Sinise Foundation Emergency COVID-19 Combat Service has mounted relief efforts since April by providing PPEs and decontamination equipment to hospitals across the country.
Wouldn’t it be great if we had more people like Sinise working in the entertainment industry?
GOOD NEWS ALERT:
In April, Gary Sinise began providing protective equipment to hospitals through the Gary Sinise Foundation.
Now, he is donating 20,000 meals for healthcare workers at Veteran's Affairs hospitals across America.
The meals will come from local restaurants.
