North Shore COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund
The North Shore COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund was established on March 19th to address the immediate needs of patients and staff impacted by the crisis. Thanks to the generosity of hundreds of donors, the fund surpassed $1.8 million this week.
$875,000 has been allocated for essential supplies and equipment, including: 7 ventilators, 13 physiological monitors, 50 temporal thermometers, as well as humidifiers, and other respiratory devices.
To help continue the fight against COVID-19 on the North Shore, donate online today.
Supplies and Equipment
Donations received to date include: 6,356 N95 masks; 23,000 masks; 500 boxes of gloves; 700 pairs of goggles; and more than 15 gallons of hand-sanitizer.
Due to the generous donations from our community, we are no longer accepting equipment and supplies. More details here.
Feeding the Frontline
We’re doing everything we can to ensure that frontline health care workers and support staff can focus on their life-saving work during these exceptional times.
Numerous local restaurants have opened their hearts and kitchens, to provide meals for staff who are burdened with long shifts. In addition, many other companies have sponsored meals for hospital staff. Find out how to donate food here.
Rest and Recovery
Thanks to a $100,000 donation from the Djavad Mowafaghian Foundation, accommodation has been made available for eligible frontline employees. This gift supports those employees who are distancing from their families for safety reasons and/or have long commutes to and from home between shifts.
