Federal Way mayor, local dentist support St. Francis Hospital staff with PPE donations

Mayor Jim Ferrell and Dr. Mo Mahoutchi donated 30 meals from Gino’s Pizza, Pasta & Co. restaurant, along with 2,000 gloves and masks on April 10.

Federal Way Mayor Jim Ferrell and Federal Way-based dentist Dr. Mo Mahoutchi recently partnered to show support for St. Francis Hospital staff.

Mahoutchi searched for a way to support local restaurants and frontline hospital staff amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and with the help of a local leader, decided to donate food and additional protective equipment.

In addition to supporting local hospital staff, Mahoutchi and Ferrell purchased pasta from Gino’s Pizza, Pasta & Co. in Federal Way to also support a local restaurant that has been economically impacted by COVID-19.

Mahoutchi also donated additional gloves and masks (personal protective equipment items) that he had in his office as hospitals workers are more in dire need, he said.

“We’re hoping it will encourage more people to do the right thing by helping our local restaurants and thanking our nurses and doctors that are risking their well being on a daily basis,” Mahoutchi said.

On Friday, April 10, Dino Johnson, St. Francis Hospital Chief Operating Officer and Holly Cook, Director of Nursing accepted the the donations of 2,000 gloves and masks, 30 meals, 10 boxes of chocolates and 50 toothbrushes.

“Mayor Ferrell and Dr. Mahoutchi’s generous efforts to support a local restaurant that’s been economically impacted by COVID-19 and to support our staff is a testament to the strength of our community,” said Dino Johnson, St. Francis Hospital chief operating officer. “These are unprecedented times and we are tremendously appreciative for all the support we’ve received from our community.”
