Marcellus Shale Coalition Thanks Medical Professionals, Donates Meals to Washington Health System Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

WASHINGTON, Pa. – The Marcellus Shale Coalition (MSC) and several of its members donated 1,000 lunches today to say ‘Thank You’ to doctors, nurses, first responders and staff at the Washington Health System hospitals in Washington and Greene Counties.

The MSC, along with members Alta Resources, Cabot Oil & Gas, Chevron, Greylock Energy, Olympus Energy, Penn E&R, Range Resources, and Southwestern Energy worked with the hospital to order lunch from a locally owned and operated pizzeria for the medical professionals dedicated to keeping our communities healthy and defeating the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“We have the deepest appreciation for the doctors, nurses and support staff working on the front lines in the battle against COVID-19,” said MSC president David Spigelmyer. “They are true heroes and as they support communities during these challenging times, we wanted to find a way to support them in return, while also helping local restaurants affected by social distancing orders.”

A second lunch will be provided to staff at Washington Health System Greene on April 11th.

“We are extremely grateful to the Marcellus Shale Coalition and their members as well as the industry for their support of our staff at Washington Health System (both Washington and Greene hospitals),” said Sara Schumacher, Executive Director, Washington Health System Foundation. “Our team is working tirelessly each day as we combat COVID-19 and this crisis. Your act of kindness is certainly felt by our staff and is deeply appreciated.”

In addition to supporting Washington Health System, the MSC and members will also provide lunch to hospital staff at UPMC Williamsport this week.
