Greenwich Resident Collecting Masks and Gloves for Hospitals in Need

She said St. Francis Hospital in Roslyn, New York, a heart specialty center now treating COVID-19 patients, is desperately seeking N95 masks.

“They have ventilators but unfortunately lack protective wear,” she said.

She said yesterday the husband of a nurse from St. Francis Hospital came by to pick up three N95 masks she had found in her workshop, adding that she also gave him all her remaining kitchen gloves – both latex and non-latex.

“We have members in our community who work at St. Francis and other New York hospitals and members of our community who are patients in New York hospitals. They are seeking our assistance now,” she said.

Hohorst asks that anyone who might have unused N95 masks to drop them off in one of the bins on her front porch at 107 Maple Ave (yellow house next to the Woman’s Club) and she will make sure they get to hospitals as needed.

“Just pop it in the box. No need to knock on the door or touch anything,” she said.

“Even it it is just one mask, it could save a life,” she added.

Hohorst said the husband of one of the nurses at St. Francis will the masks up from her front porch.

“We can all get by with scarves,” Hohorst said. “Healthcare workers need the protection. Greenwich friends, we are New York too. Please help and stay safe.”
