Adam Haber, an East Hills resident and Board Member of All Hands and Hearts, an international disaster relief organization, has announced that the group is looking to raise $250,000, which will be used to purchase Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for hospitals in Long Island and the New York metropolitan area.
Among the PPE products that hospitals desperately need include N-95 and surgical masks, goggles, face shields, alcohol- or bleach-based antibacterial or disinfecting wipes, disposable medical gowns, hand sanitizer, nitrile gloves, shoe covers and booties, no-touch thermometers, thermometer probe covers and HEPA filters for ventilators and anesthesia machines. All Hands and Hearts will work with already stressed supply chains to source PPE from a credible supplier and efficiently distribute the equipment to hospitals and health facilities that need it most, especially those on Long Island.
“We are asking everyone to donate whatever amount they can to help us reach our goal,” Mr. Haber says. “PPE suppliers are being stretched to the limit and are unable to keep up with demand. That is why All Hands and Hearts is working to get the equipment to our heroic medical personnel, who are on the front lines in battling this deadly disease.”
