Members of the Eastchester High School Student Athletic Council showed their Eagle Spirit and commitment to others when they donated 1,000 meals to healthcare workers at New York-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital.
The athletes teamed up with Giannonis deli, who agreed to provide a meal to a frontline healthcare worker with every purchase of Eagle gear during a special promotion last month.
Students sent a letter to the doctors, nurses and hospital staff expressing their gratitude. It said in part, “Fighting day in and day out to combat this fetal pandemic, risking your own lives to save our loved ones - please know that your acts of bravery and dedication are not going unnoticed. While we know these meals do not equate to the amazing work you’re all doing during this time of urgency, we truly hope that this brought light to your day and strength to your heart to continue being the strong ones, working to protect our community.”
The students also purchased lunch for the Eastchester Police Department.
Thank you to those who contributed and made this endeavor such a success.
