The 100 lunches were given in thanks to ISCRC workers for their continued care of patients at the clinic during the COVID-19 pandemic. The center provides care for service members being treated for traumatic brain injuries.

Carey Hawkins, an East Coast case manager for the Semper Fi Fund, said she was happy to come out to the Intrepid Spirit Center and provide lunch to all the health care providers who have continued to provide care for service members. "On behalf of our donors and service members, we are so thankful for all their dedication during COVID-19," she added.

Semper Fi and America's Fund also provided mask-decorated cookies to the staff and patients. The organization, which is run by military spouses and former military spouses, provides recovery assistance to the combat wounded and injured service members and veterans who receive treatment at the clinic.
