A big shout out to Travinia Italian Kitchen and Wine Bar for being the first Triangle restaurant to contribute to Feed MeFine. Feed Mefine is a joint initiative between ShiftZen and restaurant oil recycler GreaseCycle aimed at collecting gift cards from restaurants across the Triangle to be donated to the Me Fine Foundation, Inc.
The Me Fine Foundation provides financial assistance to parents and caregivers whose children are receiving long term medical treatment in Duke and UNC Children’s Hospitals. Parking, gas, food and other bills not directly associated with medical care can mount and create hardships. Me Fine Foundation, Inc. acts a stopgap providing funds to the families during the treatment process to help ease financial pressure. The restaurant gift cards collected by ShiftZen and GreaseCycle would be given to Me Fine Foundation, who would in turn give the gift cards to the parents and caregivers of the children in the hospital.
Travinia was kind enough to donate two $25 gift cards to the Me Fine Foundation. We would like to thank for being supportive of our effort and the community.
