Mike Scott gave an assist Wednesday night to health-care staffers working tirelessly amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The 76ers forward and Red Bull provided 600 meals to the overnight staff at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Scott wanted to focus on overnight staffers because they are sometimes the “forgotten" shift.
The meals were provided by We Cooked, which specializes in takeout gourmet cuisine.
“I believe that it is important that we serve those who risk their lives every day to serve others, especially during our nation’s crisis,” Scott said. "While you may not be able to serve everyone, I believe that everyone who is able should reach out to serve someone.
“I am honored to be able to provide meals for the overnight staff for CHOP as they are often overlooked but still working while many of us are sleeping.”
The 31-year-old thanked the overnight staffers for their dedication to others on a daily basis.
