Heart To Cart & Server Not Servant Fundraising Partnership

Book Chapter: Human-to-Human Service

Posted: 02/10/2021

I’ve never been a public person to celebrate my own birthday on social media, let alone a ‘Happy’ birthday human… My birthday (today, 2/10) is different this year, as I’m using the opportunity to launch a partnership between my book project, Server Not Servant and my friend, Thomas O’Keefe’s (aka @BostonTweet) work with Heart To Cart and Stride for Stride.  I was inspired by the grass roots, direct-impact good that Tom and his team are doing.

Heart to Cart provides $100 supermarket gift cards for people in the Boston area who need help buying food and groceries during the pandemic. Heart to Cart supports Chelsea Collaborative in Chelsea, MA and East Boston Neighborhood Health Center.

Stride for Stride is a running charity that buys race bibs for immigrant, BIPOC, and low-income runners to make races more inclusive and diverse.

My mission is to raise at least $5k of the total goal of $150k by May 1, 2021. Please consider even a small , TAX DEDUCTIBLE donation and/or share the link below everywhere you can between now and the end of April. Please click on the link for more info and to donate. If inspired to help further, you can also click on “I want to fundraise for this” on the donation page.

Lastly, please contact me with additional ideas to help us reach our goals. Grateful for your help.

Thank you-Patrick

Heart to Cart has partnered with Server Not Servant to deliver $100 supermarket gift cards to people in the Boston area who need help buying food.

Heart to Cart, a program of Stride for Stride, was created in April 2020 to purchase supermarket gift cards for those struggling the most during the pandemic.

Server Not Servant is a blog and book in progress advocating for service industry workers everywhere, and ‘A Case for Human-to-Human Service, Empathy, & Decency’.

After this campaign concludes at the end of March, Patrick & Tom will purchase $100 supermarket gift cards to hand deliver to people in need in the Boston area.

Since April 2020, Heart to Cart has supported families in Revere, Everett, Lynn, East Boston, Mattapan, and Chelsea with over $40,000 in supermarket gift cards. Heart to Cart also works closely with The Chelsea Collaborative and East Boston Neighborhood Health Center to support immigrant families who have been hit extremely hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thank you for your support,

Patrick Maguire – Server Not Servant

Tom O’Keefe – Heart to Cart
