Springfield Country Club and Caring for Friends Partnership Recap
Springfield Country Club partnered with Caring for Friends to help them deliver on their mission to provide meals to homebound seniors and disabled, the homeless, and families with children in need in the 5-county Philadelphia region. During these challenging times, the local nonprofit is efficiently providing food, health checks, and friendship to our most at-risk populations to reduce travel and limit crowd size to relieve hunger, contain disease, and prevent civil unrest.
Even though at one point in time Springfield Country Club’s restaurant and banquet facility had temporarily closed to the public amid this pandemic, members of the team remained working (at a safe social distance) and opened back up the expansive kitchen to prepare thousands of meals each week to be delivered to families in need, all prepared with fresh ingredients.
With the support of a generous fresh food donations from preferred vendors including Performance Food Group, we were able to make over 1,000 meals every day. Meal variety examples include beef burgundy over egg noodles with green beans, sirloin steak with roasted fingerling potatoes and broccoli, chicken fajitas, and turkey with corn and stuffing.
During these challenging times, it is important to find ways to come together to make a difference. Springfield Township has been a tremendous help and great partner during this crisis and our staff has remained optimistic and resilient.
Caring for Friends is feeding more seniors, kids and families than ever at this urgent time with the help of volunteers and partners like Springfield Country Club. Others can join in lending support through volunteerism and donations. For every $1 donated to Caring for Friends, more than $6 is generated in free meals and services.
