Supporting Essential Personnel

with Breakfast Burritos

With widespread reports of COVID-19 making headlines around the country, Elegance at Dublin is supporting those who are responding to the pandemic. The brand-new senior living community slated to open in Fall 2020, is doing its part to aid essential personnel in the Bay Area by providing them with breakfast burritos. As the Director of Sales & Marketing, Christine Hernandez knows the importance of supporting those on the frontline. “First responders and healthcare providers are working longer and harder to ensure that those in the Bay Area stay safe and healthy. The team and I wanted to provide something easy that they can eat while they’re either working or have a few minutes to spare.” 

The team at Elegance at Dublin realized that there was a need for meal support as they were building relationships with other businesses in the Bay Area. After hearing stories about essential personnel skipping meals to continue working, they made it their mission to give meals for those on the frontline. 

Partnering with Azteca Taqueria, a Dublin based Mexican restaurant, the Elegance team delivered breakfast burritos to several healthcare organizations, rehab facilities and fire stations. Some include the John Muir Health in Pleasanton, The Vintage Skill Nursing and Rehab and Alameda County Fire Station 16. So far, Elegance at Dublin has delivered 100-plus burritos. 

Kimberly De Sousa, a Director of Sales & Marketing at Elegance at Dublin, never expected to deliver so many burritos. “It was never our goal to deliver so many burritos; we just saw a huge need and we wanted to help. We can’t thank these individuals enough for all that they’re doing, and we will continue to support essential personnel any way that we can.” 

For Elegance at Dublin, supporting essential personnel is more than just doing a good deed. To Hernandez, De Sousa and the rest of the team, it’s the opportunity to give back to the Bay Area community that has fully embraced them.
