Three Ways to Pay it Forward During National Nurses Week & Support Local Businesses in NYC at the Same Time
Loulou French Bistro in Chelsea had only been open for two weeks before the pandemic hit NYC. Owner Mathias Van Leyden had to decide whether or not to close his less than a month old restaurant completely. He decided to stay, fight and began delivery and takeout. The restaurant went a step further by delivering meals to New York Presbyterian/Columbia University ICU staffers from a fundraiser set up by Seven Rooms and now he’s continuing this endeavor. Loulou is asking for donations where 100% of the proceeds go towards preparing and delivering meals to nurses and doctors during this time. They’ve raised over $4,000 to feed hospital workers.
