Smithereen Pest Management Services is supporting hospital workers and local restaurants by delivering meals to frontline workers.
As part of Smithereen SELECT, a company-wide volunteer program that began in 2011, Smitheereen is partnering with local businesses McWethy’s Tavern in Romeoville and Bartolini’s Restaurant in Midlothian to deliver box meals to their hospital customers treating COVID-19 patients.
Hospitals included in the first phase were:
- Amita Health Adventist Medical Center Bolingbrook
- Amita Health Adventist Medical Center Hinsdale
- Amita Health St. Joseph Medical Center
- OSF Little Company of Mary Medical Center in Evergreen Park.
Smithereen donated over 100 meals in the first weeks of April 2020, and plans on a second stage of meal delivery. “The restaurant and healthcare industries are very important to our business and we are grateful to be able to support these two industries during a time of need,” explained Scott Seifert, Director of Sales and Marketing at Smithereen. “These warriors are dealing with unprecedented stressful times and we wanted to show a small token of our appreciation.
Smithereen is planning on expanding the meal program with other customers in Illinois, as well as in Kansas and Missouri. “We look forward to expanding the program and support until our restaurant and hospital clients can return to more normal operations,” said Seifert.
