From us here at ACCEF Youth Care Club, and on behalf of our community, we would all like to thank everyone who donated to this cause. Your donations will be used to support our brave healthcare workers.
This fundraiser started as a small effort by high school students to try to make a difference in our community, and thanks to everyone's gratitude towards our health heroes, we have succeeded in our goal.

Another big thanks to all who have been helping to set up this fundraiser:
By no means are we done with this fundraiser, we are still all working to try and help our community, so lets keep providing Meals For our Health Heroes!
We have officially made our first food Donations! So far, we have been able to donate to 3 UCSD/Scripps hospitals, all thanks to the kindness of our community. Thank you to all who donated to this cause, and another thanks to everyone who has helped spread the word. Without your help and contributions, this campaign would have never been possible.
Here are some pictures:
As someone whose extended family lives in Wuhan, whose cousin works as a nurse in Wuhan and has braved her way through the mess of it all, this campaign means a lot to me personally; more than just a moral opportunity to show community service, it's also a way to indirectly thank my cousin.
YCC, as a community service organization, existing for over 15 years now, has always aimed to help in more than just community service; and that’s why we’re releasing this Meals for Health Heroes project. Being the president, giving the go-ahead to start this campaign also means bearing the weight of its potential failure; but it’s a risk that I’m willing to take, in both personal and professional reasons. I think it’ll prevail, but that comes with the help of everyone around me too.
I hope that everyone who comes across these posts about it realizes the utmost importance of uniting a community, helping others and subsequently themselves. At crucial times like these, it's critical that we set aside our differences and end this once and for all. of course, that starts with the smallest of actions; and a simple transaction is one of those.
With the kindness of our community, we have raised over $800 dollars within 24 hours! We are currently planning details for food deliveries to UCSD Health AND Scripps Health, and the food will soon be sent to the hospitals.
Thank you so much to everyone that chose to donate to this cause, and another big thanks to everyone that is helping to spread the word. Together, we can help ease the heavy burden that our healthcare providers are carrying everyday.
Here are some kind messages from some of our donors:
"We’ll go through this together. Thank You to medical professionals and ACCEF volunteers❤️"
"Great idea, great action!"
"Thanks, for helping out the community!"
