Melania Trump revelation: FLOTUS surprises coronavirus patients and frontline workers with packed lunches
First Lady Melania Trump has made efforts to become more visible especially throughout the pandemic. Recently, she surprised patients and frontline workers in Maryland with 150 lunch boxes.
Trump surprised a children’s hospital in Maryland with 150 packed lunches for both the patients and the staff. Her chief of staff, Stephanie Grisham, released a statement about the gesture. “Supporting those impacted by the effects of COVID-19 is something the First Lady cares deeply about, and as we navigate these unique times she will continue to reach out to people in a variety of ways,” said Grisham, who also added that as per the social distancing guidelines that remain in place, the food was sent through contact-free delivery.
Previously, Trump also sent care packages to 10 states that were affected by the pandemic. The packages featured the logo of her initiative, Be Best, and a statement at the time said it was her way of showing her appreciation for the work the health care workers at the front lines are doing.
Over the past several weeks since the lockdown was set in place, Trump tried to remain visible by reaching out to the First Ladies of other countries to discuss their respective nations’ responses to the pandemic. The First Lady also stressed the importance of wearing face masks or protective face coverings in public places contrary to her husband Donald Trump’s refusal to wear one. She has also conveyed her support and encouragement for those working in the front lines of the pandemic.
The First Lady also managed to commemorate National Teacher’s Day and Teacher Appreciation Week this week. Melania shared a photo of herself on the phone as she spoke to many educators “On #NationalTeacherDay I had the honor of speaking to some incredible teachers & educators from across our great nation. Thank you for your dedication to our students always, but especially in these unprecedented times,” wrote the First Lady in the caption on Instagram.
Trump spoke to teachers and educators of all levels, from public schools to private institutions, from elementary to high school. According to the First Lady, via a statement from the White House, “The determination that educators everywhere are showing in order to support their students during these challenging times is truly remarkable and continues to inspire me.”
