The Auto Club Group mobilizes its fleet to help restaurants and hospital workers
AAA is doing its part to fuel the frontline. The Auto Club Group is using its service trucks – normally used to rescue motorists on the roadside - to deliver meals to South Florida hospitals.
On Friday, AAA will purchase meals from Big Slicks Deli in North Miami Beach and deliver them to Jackson North Medical Center. This will be AAA’s third food delivery this week. On Monday, the Auto Club Group delivered meals from New York Marina Deli to staff at Broward Health Medical Center. Thursday, AAA picked up lunch from Offerdahl’s Off-The-Grill and delivered it to Cleveland Clinic in Weston.
“AAA is extremely appreciative of the hospital staff who are leading the fight against COVID-19,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “They are working long hours and likely running on fumes, and we just want to help recharge their batteries. In doing so, we get the added bonus of helping local businesses.”
Restaurants are facing tremendous hardships, because of COVID-19. Through this initiative, AAA purchases meals from various locally-owned restaurants, to give them an added boost. We then send a AAA service provider to load up the meals and deliver them directly to the hospitals. We hope to continue providing this service in the South Florida area as it is needed.
