“Meals for Heroes” Campaign Extended After More Than 5,500 Meals Delivered to Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital

“Meals for Heroes” Campaign Extended After More Than 5,500 Meals Delivered to Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital

Due to the program’s success, The Shepherd’s Circle added another week of Meals for Heroes to be delivered to health workers at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital. Members of the community purchased more than 5,500 meals at participating area restaurants during the first two weeks of Meals for Heroes. They’ve scheduled another week’s worth of upcoming deliveries and shared details about how we can purchase the next meals.

The goal of Meals for Heroes is to show appreciation for local doctors, nurses and staff on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic while supporting area restaurants struggling with lost business during this time.

In late March, The Shepherd’s Circle introduced the Meals for Heroes campaign in partnership with Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital. Founded in 2014, The Shepherd’s Circle is a not-for-profit organization made up of young families supporting initiatives that enhance patient care at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital. Their annual Barn Dance has been raising funds for Good Shepherd’s Integrative Medicine Program, which will provide alternative, non-traditional care to complement a patient’s treatment plan. Integrative medicine uses evidence-based practices to reduce pain and speed up recovery for patients. Learn more about their mission at Facebook.com/ShepherdsCircle.

Located at 450 W. Highway 22 in Barrington, Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital is one of 12 hospitals that are part of Advocate Aurora Health, the 10th largest not-for-profit, integrated health system in the United States. With 176 beds, Good Shepherd Hospital is the workplace of 1,590 team members including 530 nurses and 770 physicians in 62 specialities. In 2017, Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital completed a four-year modernization project to ensure health care delivery remains outstanding and attuned to the evolving needs of the community.
