Pick a hospital, Pick a time slot/meal and then deliver that meal to them following their instructions for the timeslot you picked.

As you know, ER doctors, nurses and other medical personnel are on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis. They are facing a critical shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) – The protective face masks, gloves, medical gowns and similar items that make it possible for them to do their jobs safely.
 
We need to keep our medical professionals safe so that they can keep our family, friends – and maybe you and me – alive.

PLEASE NOTE:
Hospitals are only accepting donations of specific items. Generally, they want factory-made, hospital-quality supplies that are still in the manufacturer’s unopened original packaging. You should only drop off donated supplies after you have made prior arrangements with the hospital. Guidelines differ from hospital to hospital, so please check the web page first. Hospitals are also accepting monetary and blood donations during this crisis, so if you do not have any medical items to donate, there is still a way for you to help.
