Detroit Lions Veteran Wide Receiver and Wife Thank Hospital Employees

April 29, 2020

DETROIT – Detroit Lions veteran wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. and his wife Jazmyn are thanking Henry Ford healthcare workers by donating food trucks and baked goods to Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital employees on Thursday, April 30.

“We are so inspired by the courage shown by the men and women on the front lines across our nation. They work tirelessly to do all that they can to help and care for the people while risking their own health. Being business owners ourselves, we too would like to extend our deepest appreciation to the food companies that are providing our heroes with the meals that they deserve during this rough time. Let’s continue to join together in arms and do what we can to fight this fight and become stronger as ONE,” said Marvin and Jazmyn Jones.

The couple also created a video thanking the staff at Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital which will be shared internally with employees.

The food trucks will be providing 1,000 meals to hospital employees. In addition, 250 cakes will be donated from the Jones’s Nothing Bundt Cakes store in Troy. The participating food trucks are Delectable, Stix and Stone, Mean Weenie and Brass Kitchen.

The trucks will be parked in Lot C, located just south of the hospital’s courtyard area, where they will dish out lunch offerings to the day shift employees from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and dinner choices to the evening staff from 8-9 p.m.

A safe environment will be provided by the hospital staff to ensure that social distancing is maintained while employees enjoy the donated mobile culinary offerings.

Earlier this month, Lions Head Coach Matt Patricia and his players donated food trucks that served employees at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit through the Detroit Lions Inspire Change initiative, a program launched by Lions Head Coach Matt Patricia, Lions players and Martha Firestone Ford, team owner and chairman, following the 2018 NFL season.

NOTE: Please be advised that any accredited news media planning to cover the event must come prepared wearing protective face masks and honor social distancing. Henry Ford will provide visuals to news media.
