While the rest of the city shelters in place and cheers on healthcare workers every day, the Udell’s have led the charge in taking care of those on the frontlines of the pandemic.
The Udell’s, owners of London Jewelers on Long Island, have visited five different hospitals across Manhattan and Long Island donating meals to nurses, doctors, and all those fighting against COVID-19.
“We are so grateful to our first responders and hospital staff risking their lives to take care of others,” said Scott Udell, co-vice president and a fourth-generation member of the London Jewelers family. “We thank them for their bravery and hope to bring them whatever comfort we can with a smile and a hot meal.”
But they aren’t done yet. The Udell’s have started the #LondonJewelersCares Initiative to continue to treat those on the frontline like part of their family.
Throughout April and May, portions of their proceeds will go to feeding the staffs of North Shore University Hospital, Glen Cove Hospital, LIJ Medical Center, Mount Sinai Hospital, and NYU Medical Center every week.
