The Saturday Club held its first Community Outreach project of the new club season — virtually! — this past weekend. The event kicked off with an inspiring presentation by event chair Stephanie Harris, who introduced us to Off Their Plate, a grassroots nonprofit with a dual mission to provide an economic lifeline to COVID-impacted restaurants and also feed frontline workers and communities in crisis.
Stephanie works on the COVID-19 floor at Lankenau Medical Center as a nurse case manager and has seen first-hand the impact that this pandemic has had on the medical community, the ill patients and the economy.
Member volunteers participating in this project have helped raise dollars to support OTP, write ‘thank you’ notes to the Philadelphia area restaurants and hospitals participating in the program and raised awareness through their own personal social media posts. To see the full presentation and learn more about this amazing organization and our efforts to support them, check out the video on-demand.
