McEachin thanks Shelia Mitchell for donating lunch to Sentara Obici Hospital

donald mceachinCongressman A. Donald McEachin is highlighting the work of Suffolk small business owner Sheila Mitchell, who hosted a sale with proceeds going toward a donation of 30 pizzas to frontline workers at Sentara Obici Hospital in Suffolk.

McEachin launched the Thank-A-Neighbor program earlier this month to celebrate residents of Virginia’s Fourth District who are going above and beyond to help others during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Ms. Mitchell has shown that you do not have to be part of a large organization to help your community,” said McEachin. “She was able to work with a few friends to host a flash sale and make this lunch delivery possible. I am certain that the staff at Sentara Obici were very appreciative of her generous donation.”

“When I saw on WAVY TV 10’s Facebook page that the first recovered patient in Suffolk was able to leave the hospital, I was so overwhelmed with joy to see that, that I decided we would provide lunch for the healthcare workers. I was so thankful that we came together as a group and we were able to do that for the frontline workers at the hospital,” said Mitchell, owner of Trinity Blessed Bling.
