As a community, we are experiencing what can described as a once-in-a-lifetime event. Not only has a pandemic brought the country and economy to a halt, it is also galvanizing a number of efforts to help stem the tide.
2 years ago, North10 Philadelphia hosted a disaster/emergency prep workshop at The Lenfest Center in North Philadelphia. Almost feels serendipitous that they are here on the front lines of a real life pandemic right out of the movies.
With the help of Called to Serve CDC’s executive director, Jeff Harley, North 10’s Josh Klaris and Temple University hospital worked to coordinate 100 (soon to be 150) weekly meals from three nearby restaurants for the Emergency Department personnel assisting in the response to this situation.
