LINDSAY, ONTARIO—Notable Ontario family lawyer Russell Alexander and his legal team have arranged for 50 pizzas to be sent to Peterborough Regional Health Centre on Wednesday, April 29, as part of its new “Save a Slice” initiative, now in its fourth week, to help health care workers and restaurant employees on the front lines of the coronavirus.
“With this pandemic now in its second month, we are appreciative of all the hard work that our nurses, doctors and other medical professionals on the front line are doing every day,” said Alexander. “We hope these pizzas will remind them of everyone pulling for them right now while helping out local restaurants that have seen business drop off during the outbreak.”
The Lindsay, Ontario family law firm started the initiative four weeks ago as a way of giving back during the coronavirus pandemic. On Wednesday, the pizzas are being prepared and delivered by Night Kitchen in Peterborough, a local pizzeria, in two shifts at noon and 9 p.m. to Peterborough Regional Health Centre.
Last week, the law firm sent pizza from North of Brooklyn Pizzeria in Toronto to Toronto General Hospital and previously it sent Brothers Ristorante to Lakeridge Health Oshawa and Pane Vino to the emergency room of Ross Memorial.
The firm, which helps families going through divorce with a collaborative approach, has also created a new Covid-19 and Divorce Information Centre to provide answers to common questions during the pandemic. Ontario residents can get answers to questions about how to work remotely with their lawyers, how the pandemic may affect court dates and even how to avoid sparking a divorce during the stress of quarantine.
Russell Alexander Collaborative Family Lawyers remains open, as lawyers have been deemed an essential service, but staffers are working remotely for their safety and the safety of their clients.
