First lady Melania Trump donated 150 box lunches to a children’s research hospital in Maryland to help support those impacted by the novel coronavirus pandemic, a representative said Monday.
Stephanie Grisham, a spokesperson for Trump who temporarily served as White House press secretary until early last month, said the first lady donated the lunches to feed patients and staff of Children’s Inn at the National Institute of Health in Bethesda.
“Supporting those impacted by the effects of COVID19 is something the First Lady cares deeply about, and as we navigate these unique times she will continue to reach out to people in a variety of ways,” Grisham said.
“In accordance with social distancing guidelines, and in order to protect everyone’s safety at the medical facility, the food was sent securely with a contact-free delivery.”
Last week, the first lady also sent care packages to kids and staff at hospitals in 10 states and Washington, D.C., in what she described then as a “small token of my appreciation for their courage and leadership in this time.”
