Protective face masks are in short supply in hospitals around the world as we fight the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, so Genghis Grill decided to help out and donate some to local healthcare workers. On April 17, they donated 1,000 N95 masks to staff at Medical City Dallas, as well as food for the COVID-19 staff members. On April 15, they did the same thing for Methodist Mansfield Medical Center.
This is just one of the new initiatives in place that Genghis Grill has started to benefit local hospitals, healthcare workers and first responders. The company has also started an Adopt-A-Hospital program, in which Dallas/Fort Worth restaurants drop off over 230 meals a week to support local hospital Emergency Room teams in the metroplex. Also, for a limited time, Genghis Grill is supporting healthcare workers and first responders by giving 20% off all carryout or call-ahead orders with a valid ID.
“During this challenging time, we want to show support for those that are on the front line,” said Genghis Grill president Paul Carolan in a recent press release. “At Genghis Grill, we remain committed to giving back to our communities. These new initiatives are ways we can help the healthcare and first responders who are sacrificing to serve all of us.”
