Boston – Together with its Massachusetts lifestyle properties, Massachusetts-based developer, WS Development has partnered with Fuel the Fight Boston to feed hundreds of healthcare workers on the frontlines while supporting the local restaurant industry.
Spreading kindness and hope through the community’s generosity, WS and Fuel the Fight Boston will raise funds to purchase meals from local restaurants that are facing challenges during this time to provide as many meals as possible to local hospital frontline workers bravely battling the pandemic.
WS Development’s Massachusetts properties, including Seaport, Legacy Place, The Street Chestnut Hill, MarketStreet Lynnfield, and Derby Street Shops, are launching individual fundraising campaigns on their digital platforms in partnership with Fuel the Fight Boston, now through May 20, 2020.
With this uplifting initiative, WS Development aims to provide 500 meals to frontline workers battling the pandemic at Newton-Wellesley Hospital, Beth Israel Lahey Health, Mass General Hospital, South Shore Hospital Weymouth, and Norwood Hospital.
100% of donations will be used to purchase meals from designated local restaurants that are facing challenges due to COVID-19. Donations can be made via Fuel the Fight Boston’s GoFundMe page, www.gofundme.com/fuel-the-fight-boston and donors are asked to select the center name and hospital in the ”referred by” team member drop down box. No amount is too small as each donation will support the community in a meaningful way.
“We are so pleased to be teaming up with WS Development to expand our efforts and reach new hospitals and restaurants. It has been amazing to see how willing people are to give back and WS Development has gone above and beyond,” says Fuel the Fight Boston Co-Founder, Julia Gutierrez.
“Our places have always served as a platform for bringing communities together and that connectivity – physical or otherwise – has never been more important than it is today. We’re honored to be able to rally our network across Greater Boston in support of our restaurants and out of our sincerest gratitude for the courageous efforts of the healthcare community,” says Maggie Smith, Head of Marketing at WS Development.
“Cardullo’s Gourmet Shoppe is honored to participate with WS Development in the Fuel the Fight Boston campaign that provides our healthcare heroes with much needed fuel for the long days and nights ahead. We are so grateful for their sacrifice, courage, commitment and service to our local community as we face such unprecedented challenges together,” says Kim Wilson, Owner of Cardullo’s Gourmet Shoppe in Seaport.
