Elmhurst pop-up biz donates Indonesian
desserts to COVID-19 heroes across NYC
BY CARLOTTA MOHAMED
Papa Don NYC, a pop-up and
catering company in Elmhurst,
is serving sweet Indonesian
desserts to COVID-19 heroes this week
across the city.
The company is working with the
community to feed healthcare workers
in need in different hospitals,
EMS groups, FDNY and many other
essential workers on the frontlines
in all boroughs.
“Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a
lot of the pop-up events we planned
on doing were canceled or postponed.
However, we are staying positive,”
said Papa Don of Papa Don NYC.
“We want to show our community
our support. We are hoping we can
reach more people to be a part of the
movement in helping one another.
Our goal is to give back as much as
we can through this pandemic. We
are all in this together.”
Papa Don’s has donated more than
500 Indo-pancakes to five hospitals
so far — Elmhurst Hospital, Flushing
Hospital, Jamaica Hospital, Coney
Island Hospital in Brooklyn and
NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital in
This week, Papa Don’s is planning
to donate to Montefiore Hospital in
the Bronx, an EMS group in Brooklyn
and one of the busiest FDNY
firehouses in Harlem.
On top of the donations, Papa Don’s
is also donating a mini Indonesian
pancake — also known as a martabak
manis fi lled with chocolate sprinkle,
crushed peanuts, sesame seeds, condensed
milk and/or cheese — with
every purchase made by a customer.
During the week on certain days,
Papa Don’s is taking orders via phone
or text at 718-844-6516 or through Instagram
(@papadonnyc) for delivery
only. The other half of the week, they
will be doing donations.
Papa Don’s has also created a
GoFundMe account for those who
would like to donate in helping to
give hospital staff something sweet
to look forward to.
