Rocket Sports Properties is teaming up with The University of Toledo Athletics’ corporate partner Wingstop to donate 400 lunches to doctors, nurses and other hospital staff at UTMC Tuesday, May 19.

Meals will be provided at 11:30 a.m. for the day-shift employees and at 7:30 p.m. for night-shift personnel.

“It’s a privilege for us to be able to do this with Wingstop — to serve our community and to provide food for very deserving hospital personnel who are doing so much to protect us during the pandemic,” said Robert Rice, general manager for Rocket Sports Properties, the University’s athletics multimedia rightsholder and locally based Learfield IMG College team.

“Right now, more than ever, it’s important for us to give back to our community, and there are millions of people who need our help,” said Tommy Pipatjarasgit, Wingstop brand partner. “We have donated thousands of wings to hospital workers, fire fighters and police departments working the front lines in Detroit and Toledo. It has really boosted team morale that they are making a difference by giving back, and it gives everyone a sense of hope and positivity.”

Pipatjarasgit’s Wingstop locations are at 3330 Central Ave. in Toledo and 1399 Conant St. in Maumee.
