Share Article

Local dealer group, Crown Automotive, will be delivering over 500 meals for medical staff and workers at two Pinellas hospitals Bayfront and Morton Plant Hospital on April 9th. The meals will be donated as a thank you to the front line nurses, doctors and those supporting the front line hospital workers for all the sacrifices and personal risk they have made during these uncertain times.

Our community must come together during these tough times and we’re proud to be able to support both our local restaurants and hospital workers during these challenging times.

During these uncertain times, local dealership group Crown Automotive Group, has stepped forward to help support our community as we collectively fight the COVID-19 pandemic. To help the heroes on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis and to give relief to local restaurants affected by the lock down, Crown has asked the Parkshore Grill and Baystar Restaurant Group and Catering to prepare over 500 meals to hospital workers and medical staff at two local hospitals: Bayfront and Morton Plant.

“We can’t thank our area hospitals and their dedicated staffs adequately for what they do every day as we face this epic tragedy that has affected so many families in our community and the nation. We also wanted to support our area restaurant groups, Frank Chivas with Baystar and Steve Westphal of St. Pete Restaurant Group who have been so charitable in their own right during this pandemic,” said Jim Myers, President and Chief Operating Officer of Crown Automotive Group. “The least we can do is give back and make sure these front line hospital heroes don’t have to worry about a meal during their busy shift.”

Long hours fighting for the community has made day-to-day activities even more difficult for medical staff working in hospitals. Crown would like to thank these individuals for all the sacrifices they have made by providing a good meal during a typical busy shift.

At Morton Plant’s main campus 250 meals will be delivered between 10:30 and 11:00 am on Thursday April 9th. 250 meals represent enough food to feed all the staff working from the 11 am morning shift through the afternoon. Morton Plant meals will be prepared by The Baystar Restaurant and Catering Group, best known for the Salt Rock Grille and Island Way Grille of Clearwater and the food will be donated and delivered by Crown employees.

At Bayfront Hospital, the Parkshore Grille of Beach Drive in downtown St. Pete, part of the St. Petersburg Hospitality Group will prepare 275 meals which will be donated and delivered by Crown Automotive Group employees at 5:00 pm on Thursday April 9th. 275 meals represent enough food to feed all the late shift hospital staff as they prepare to fight for so many patients again through the night.

All Crown delivery volunteers will deliver the food outside the hospital at an exclusive entry used by hospital workers only. Crown will also be delivering 30 cases of water to both hospitals.

“We are proud to stand together with other local businesses,” continued Myers. “Our community must come together during these tough times and we’re proud to be able to support both our local restaurants and hospital workers during these challenging times.”
