by Today's Trucking

WTCWINDSOR, Ont.The Windsor Transportation Club has announced a program to feed Windsor-Essex region’s healthcare workers.

The club said Feed the Frontline has raised $13,000 since its launch Friday. First delivery of meals is scheduled for April 21.

The program is aimed at highlighting how frontline workers are helping other frontline workers battling the effects of Covid-19, the club said.

“Feed the Frontline supports our healthcare workers by providing them food. This initiative also supports local restaurants that have suffered greatly because of the stay-at-home instructions and the forced closures of dine-in options.”

All funds raised will go towards purchasing food from local participating restaurants to feed healthcare workers, the club said.

“The Windsor Transportation Club is proud to contribute to building a stronger community by supporting local charities and other community initiatives,” said president Jason Primeau.

“During this crisis, many of our members have stepped up to help by protecting Canadians and keeping our economy moving. We want to thank our members and other frontline heroes.”

Contributions can be made through the club’s GoFundMe page.

  • It is a nice idea but most of the health care workers are still getting a paycheck. A bigger problem in Windsor are the people living on the street in Windsor some of these are former truck drivers. They are being told by the shelter system in Windsor and city to go live on the street or make their own way to another city. Many truck drivers do not have a home other than their truck and if sick and unable to work are in a very bad position. I know as I live in a borrowed van as no shelter would have me as I had transported people to a hospital in another city so they told me to back to Toronto where things are a complete disaster for the homeless people.
