Who we are.
Welcome to our project BHMcares. My name is Dr. Brandon White, I’m a hospital physician here in Birmingham. Our goal with this project in these trying times is to do everything we can to help our local businesses affected by the coronavirus pandemic by supporting them and at the same time helping alleviate some of the stress of the pandemic felt by healthcare workers.
Many (all?) hospital cafeterias have been affected like everyone else and are operating on narrower hours. Oftentimes healthcare providers aren’t able to go stand in the line in the narrow time frames that are available. This has led to folks missing out on meals while at work and the last thing anyone wants is a tired, overworked, and now hangry doctor or nurse taking care of them or their loved ones!
I’m proposing a coordinated campaign with some of our local restaurants to provide food to hospital staff. I have been asked by many friends and families what they can do to help. Many have asked if they can donate money anywhere, and frankly, I don’t know. What I do know is that the restaurants listed are willing to cater funded by donations from anyone who is able and willing to donate.
A heartfelt thank you to anyone and everyone who has donated their time and/or money to this cause. We are especially thankful to our restaurant and delivery partners for providing these much needed services.
