Ok, its time to start helping our heroes, the hospital workers. I just met with Quinn's other grandmother, Lauren Weber's mom Linda Weber, who is a nurse on the Covid 19 floor to give her treats for the nurses at Lankenau Hospital in Wynnewood, just across the border from Philadelphia. I asked her what the nurses needed. N95 masks of course if anyone has any or comfortable everyday masks for wearing under the full face shield they have to wear.
But also they desperately need baby monitors, either video or audio, even walkie talkies. They need these to set up in the patient rooms so they don't have to keep going in and out all the time and can keep an eye or an ear to their patients.
So many people are taking the time to declutter their homes and attics, if you have any of the above, please sanitize the monitors and seal them in a clear baggie and let me know and I'll get them from you.
I'll set up drop off locations in Northeast Philly, South Philly Center City, Delco, Bucks, Montco, Chester County, New Jersey and Delaware. Let me know either through this post, messenger, email firstname.lastname@example.org or my cell 610-308-8994. If we get too many I'll get them to other hospitals.
Its time to stop reading about these horrible stories and take action to help. Nurses, doctors and their teams are the underappreciated heroes of 2020, just like the firefighters were underappreciated until 9/11. Thank you to all our first responders and be safe, and may God Bless us all !
