Thank you for your kind donations this week – May 28, 2020

We’re grateful for all the donations we’ve received this week. Thank you.

From a book sale to pizza, and flowers to gowns, our wonderful community in Queens and New York City is keeping us strong.

book sale
We can never thank our neighbors’ enough for their ongoing support. Avery held a book sale with her friends which raised $71 for our fight against the coronavirus. Thank you, Avery!

Gowns are among the items that we urgently need. We’re grateful to the kind people at Garment District for Gowns for providing us with 50 of them.

lic relief may 28
LIC Relief have been one of the most continually supportive community groups throughout the crisis. During the past week, they stopped by with gloves and masks.

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn sent these beautiful flowers to our staff for all of their hard work.

last mile masks
The shortage of N95 face masks is well-documented. So, we’re grateful to grassroots volunteer groups like Last Mile – NYCPPE for getting this box to us.

united healthcare may 28
UnitedHealthcare are long-term supporters of The Floating Hospital. Their donation of face masks arrived as our COVID-19 testing program fully launched. These masks keep our staff safe as they administer these vital tests.

diapers may 28
Panic buying and price-gouging has made it difficult to obtain essential items, especially for those already in need. Baby2Baby provides diapers and other childcare essentials for those living in poverty. We’re grateful for the large shipment of diapers they sent us to distribute to our patients.
