According to a Facebook post from Minocqua Sandwich Company, on March 26, Minocqua Sandwich Company received an anonymous donation for $100 to buy sandwiches for the heroes at the Howard Young Hospital emergency room.
Bad Bones BBQ also received a donation to provide $100 worth of BBQ to the Marshfield Clinic.
According to a Facebook post
from Minocqua Sandwich Company, "Per Mar Security over on Highway 70, donated $200 to be used to buy sandwiches for people on the front lines. After that money was raised, folks within the Per Mar Security world, their friends, and family, raised another $400 amongst themselves to keep this idea going."
Minocqua Sandwich Company decided to give $100 worth of sandwiches or burritos a day to whomever is working during the COVID-19 pandemic until money runs out.
Owner Minocqua Sandwich Company Kirk Bangstad says he loves the generosity of the community.
"People are donating because they want to help those folks that are working hard, think about our nurses that are in the emergency room right now they have a shortage of masks", said Bangstad.
Bangstad said they have worked to be able to prepare food quickly, just like other restaurants in the area to feed people.
"We've positioned ourselves to where we can make sandwiches and burritos quickly," said Bangstand. "You know other restaurants like the BBQ place like bad bones BBQ place can make BBQ really quickly and deliver it , so its not about the restaurants its about getting food out to these people."
Minocqua Sandwich Company also has a GoFundMe
set up to raise money for buying food for workers on the front line during the COVID-19 crisis.
