CHARLOTTE, NC — As healthcare workers around the state and nation continue to face the intense pressures of combating the ongoing novel coronavirus outbreak, members of the communities, from business owners to families, are stepping up to express gratitude.

One Charlotte area restaurant owner did just that Friday, donating nearly 200 meals of sandwiches and chips in a box with a handwritten note of thanks.

"It is my pleasure to deliver meals to the nurses and doctors who are helping keep our community in good health,” said Tim Goss, who owns Firehouse Subs located at 7211 Waverly Walk Avenue in Charlotte. “Giving back is something we prioritize at Firehouse Subs and we are thankful to continue supporting our community during this time of uncertainty.”

Through the help of the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, Goss delivered 85 meals to Atrium Health Union Hospital and 100 meals to Novant Hospital on April 10.

Since March 18, the Foundation, which is funded by restaurants, guests and donors, has helped provide more than 17,300 meals from Firehouse Subs to healthcare workers, first responders, families in need and seniors who are unable to leave their homes.

The spread of novel coronavirus is now up to 3,908 confirmed cases, and blamed for 74 deaths, North Carolina health officials said Friday morning.

Donations to the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation may be made here.
