At its meeting on April 6th, Session approved the implementation of a coronavirus response project partnering with GoFundMe. This project will seek to provide medical professionals working at Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital with food twice a week while they fight the coronavirus crisis. The food will be prepared by local restaurants, thereby stimulating their survival, and will be delivered by them to the Emergency Department, ICU, and Coronavirus floors, our front line in the war with this virus.

We hope to raise $8,000 in contributions, which should provide food for about 75 medical staff per day through the rest of April and May in those areas of the hospital identified. Types of food to be provided include pizzas, subs, breakfast sandwiches, tacos, etc. as requested by the Sentara VBGH coordinator. This project will be coordinated at FPC by Randy DuVall, Director of Missions,  and Janet Ellis.

In addition to supporting the medical staff, the fund will support our local restaurants and their beleaguered staffs.

The GoFundMe campaign is partnering with First Presbyterian Church of Virginia Beach. The church is providing the first $1,000 and will be the recipient and distributor of all contributions.
