SOUTH FLORIDA HUSBAND AND WIFE DUO DONATE MEALS TO HEALTHCARE WORKERS
Firehouse Subs Boca Raton Franchisees Gayle and Allan Lampert partnered with Twinlab Corp, a publicly traded company headquartered in Boca Raton, to feed local healthcare workers across South Florida and in Long Island, NY, where Twinlab also has an office.
Through this partnership, they provided 60 meals a day for 30 days to healthcare workers at local hospitals and medical centers in South Florida, including the Delray Beach Medical Center, Coral Spring Medical Center and the Palm Beach Children's Hospital at St. Mary’s Medical Center. In total, they donated about 1,800 meals.
Ryan Zackon, Vice President of Twinlab Corp, developed a funds matching program to allow his employees across the country to offer a one-time payroll deduction as a donation to purchase food and it grew from there. In six days, they raised more than $40,000 through employee donations and community outreach to cover the cost of these meals. Twinlab also bought and donated $5,000 worth of Firehouse Subs gift cards to hand out to ER/ICU staff at Boca Regional Hospital who don’t have time to eat during their busy shifts.
