Through a Facebook post the Outreach committee was made aware of a local project to financially support.  The committee was given a generous donation with a request the funds go locally to help during our current health crisis.   The Facebook article seemed like the perfect opportunity to make this request come true.   FLAG — Front Line Appreciation Group is our current endeavor to support.    The FLAG project started in New Jersey and has now caught on to several other states as the entire country faces the same issues.   A group of people in Clayton decided to use this program to help out our neighbors and friends in the restaurants and health facilities that are available to us at St. Paul’s.      The funds go to purchase meals from our local restaurants that are currently suffering financially due to the closure orders.   These meals are packaged and delivered to both our Smithfield and Clayton hospitals and donated to our health care workers who are on the front-line of taking care of all who are in need of medical help.   This not only keeps our favorite local restaurants with some much needed income but also provides the health care workers with nutritious quality meals at no cost to them.   This frees these workers from having to wonder where they will get something to eat without relying on fast-foods or sandwiches every day.  We all know someone that either is a local restauranteur or health care worker, some even from St. Paul’s,   We are in a position to help them out.     The Brotherhood is also considering making a large donation to FLAG.   If you would like to make a donation you can mail your check to St. Paul’s with FLAG in the memo line.   Let’s keep helping out!
