Fairfax Chef Sends Sweets To Front line Workers Of COVID-19

Owner of a Fairfax, Virginia, business is baking treats for workers on the front lines of the coronavirus outbreak. Farozan Jivraj is the pastry chef and owner of Cupcake Novelties. She packed decorative treat boxes with specialties from snickerdoodle brownies to Oreo jewels and even rainbow pretzel bark. Jivraj said, “I thought this would be a good way to show some kind of appreciation to all these people working so hard on the front lines”.

According to wtop.com, “Jivraj has made the special deliveries to Inova Fairfax, Sentara in Woodbridge, and Fort Belvoir Community Hospital. She also delivered boxes to several doctors in the D.C. area. “I’ve had some people tell me it brought some sunshine and positivity into their day, so that was really a gratifying part,” Jivraj said. Jivraj hopes to continue this on a weekly basis, and she added that she’d like to organize a drop-off for first responders as well.”

As per wtop.com, “Jivraj said generous donors have pitched in to help, many of them contributing to a GoFundMe campaign she set up that she calls #TreatsForFrontliners. She also hopes to soon go national with her treats for front-line workers, branching out from the D.C. area. Although Jivraj hopes her business picks up once social distancing measures are loosened, she doesn’t intend to stop doing her treat boxes anytime soon. “I just want to continue doing this for as long as I can,” Jivraj said.”
