This family is trying to help support a whole community in time of crisis and you can help.

Restaurants for Responders has been created by the Friedman family with a goal of not only keeping restaurants in business but as a means of feeding all of those out on the frontlines helping those with covid-19.

By raising money to order gift cards over the phone, Tiffany, Cary, Austin, Spencer and Arden have managed to raise/spend over $5,000 to help both the restaurants and the first responders...so far!

They are super careful and have a whole system for this. They order the gift cards via Venmo, have the restaurants bring the gift cards out to their trunk where they are placed in a bin, taken home, and individually sanitized.

The gift cards are then gifted to first responders as a big, giant THANK YOU for all that they do. Specifically, they are distributing the gift cards to Centrastate Medical Center, Marlboro/Morganville First Aid, Immediate Care Medical Walk-In and more. The gift cards are then given out to employees working on the front lines such as nurses, people cleaning the hospital rooms, etc.

The family has also delivered food from local restaurants to the Marlboro police as well as the local urgent cares.
