On Monday, the team announced a new campaign called the"Cardinals Carry-out" program. It's designed to bring players and fans together in a unique way, to not only support the local restaurant community but also aid front-line health care providers.
Here are the details of how "Cardinals Carry-out" works:
- INTERACTIVE STATEWIDE RESTAURANT MAP: An interactive statewide map that is available at bothazcardinals.com/cardinalscarryoutand the Cardinals downloadable app will showcase local restaurants that are open for business and providing food for pick-up or delivery. Each establishment on the map is marked with a "Cardinals Carry-out" icon. When clicked, it will display the restaurant's hours of operation, address, phone number and a link to its menu.
- FAVORITES OF CARDINALS PLAYERS AND FANS: Initially, establishments on the map reflect the favorites of Cardinals players and staff as well as those suggested by Local First Arizona for their proximity to area hospitals. But fans also have the opportunity to nominate their top spots for inclusion on the map which will be constantly updated and expanded.
- RESTAURANT SELECTION "DRAFT": In the spirit of the upcoming NFL Draft, restaurants and coffee shops will be selected for special recognition each day from April 13-24.
- RECOGNIZING "HEALTHCARE HEROES": The Cardinals will then purchase meals from the selected establishments for distribution to the Healthcare Heroes on the front-line of the COVID-19 pandemic working at local hospitals and facilities.
