FORT WORTH — On Jan. 26 ICU COVID workers at Texas Health Southwest enjoyed a meal prepared by members of the Isadore Garsek Lodge of B’nai B’rith, a Jewish social service organization actively dedicated to improving the quality of life in its community. 

“The leaders of our hospital appreciate the support from our community. Knowing someone cares is a great encouragement,” said Susan Meredith, food coordinator for Texas Health Southwest. 

​The meal included homemade shepherd’s pies, fruit salad and cookies. 

The lodge brought enough food to feed 30 day-shift and 30 night-shift ICU workers. 

Accepting the food on behalf of the hospital was Gaylia Hammond, who works with Meredith.

“We very much appreciate the work our frontline hospital workers do every day of the year to care for our neighbors,” said Alex Nason, president of the Fort Worth Lodge.  “Your sacrifices often go unnoticed, and we also know that many have put their health at risk to keep us safe.  Providing food for ICU COVID staff who have worked so hard during this pandemic is just a small way we can show our gratitude.” 

Attending the event were Joe Mintz, Rich Hollander, Robert Chicotsky, Dan Sturman, Jim Stanton, Alex Nason and Dr. Evgeny, Rina, Adam and Annie Ostrinsky.
