Front-Line Appreciation Group logo (FLAG)

Regional real estate group Century 21 New Millenium has launched a fundraising campaign to help feed front-line health-care workers during the coronavirus pandemic while also keeping local restaurants in business.

The campaign is called FLAG, or Front Line Appreciation Group, and is seeking donations through a GoFundMe site.  Money raised is used to pay restaurants to deliver meals to first-responders and health care staff.

The campaign also has a Facebook page and is encouraging users to post photos front-line workers and tag them so group members can send them their thanks.

FLAG was started in New Jersey by two mothers who raised $75,000 in their first two weeks.  The Washington area group had raised about $6,000 through Wednesday afternoon, according to the GoFundMe page.
