We’re Donating Meals – You Can Help
Join the #MightyMovement to Support Our Community
By: Christine Bean
If there’s one thing we’ve learned during the Covid-19 crisis, it’s that we are all in this together! We launched the #MightyMovement to support our local community and fellow small businesses in three ways. First, we partnered with locally owned restaurants and gyms and are offering DOUBLE Mighty Points for every gift card you purchase on the Mighty Movement website.
Second, in partnership with The PUSO Foundation, Hearts of Empowerment, and Trophy Body Personal Training, we have been accepting donations via GoFundMe to provide healthy, fresh meals to hospital staff members. We are grateful to have a team of generous partners who all have the same goal in mind; to give back to the selfless members of our community who are risking their lives to save others. We are delivering meals every Saturday to hospitals in our community. The first hospital was George Washington University Hospital and the second was Inova Fairfax Hospital. This coming Saturday we will be delivering 100 meals to Medstar Georgetown University Hospital Center.
The PUSO Foundation stands for Purposeful Unconditional Service to Others, and their mission is to provide hope with a purpose. As strong believers in making a difference, they have pledged to donate $1,000 in addition to what is raised in the fundraiser. Hearts of Empowerment is a charity that creates strategic fundraising events to empower other Non-Profit Organizations around the world. They have pledged to donate $750 in addition to what is raised from the #MightyMovement. Trophy Body Personal Training is owned by Chase Mckesey, a Northern Virginia native, who has coached and empowered thousands. Trophy Body PT will be hosting “Free Weekly Social-Distance Outdoor Workouts” for hospital staff members. MightyMeals has pledged to match 25% of all donations, which means if we hit our goal of $5,000, we will have raised a total of $8,000 in meals!
Third, within the past three weeks we have donated 100s of meals to our community! You can donate meals directly to our community via our website. The organizations we have donated MightyMeals to include: Restoration Arlington, Montgomery County Police and Fire Training Academy, Alexandria Police Department, Real Food for Kids/Bayou Bakery, and New Hope Housing.
We are honored to give back to the community who has given so much to us, and we wouldn’t be able to do this without the help of our #MightyFam! Join the #MightyMovement today by purchasing gift cards to your favorite local small businesses, donating MightyMeals to our community or by donating meals to hospital workers who are working tirelessly on the front lines. If you want to join as a restaurant, or as a MightyMeals pickup location, simply fill out this form. Together, we are MIGHTY!
