VNSNY has cared for vulnerable New Yorkers for over 125 years, and our services are critical during this epidemic. Your donation helps provide support and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and more to our staff so they remain healthy, and able to care for those in need.
As the coronavirus pandemic hits New York, we are doing everything possible to keep our nurses, aides, social workers, and other frontline staff safe while ensuring that we continue to provide the home health care services New Yorkers so desperately need right now. We are collaborating with hospitals and government agencies to get help to those who need it and fight the outbreak.
Fearlessly traveling to the homes of families for over 125 years, VNSNY has always been there for New Yorkers in times of crisis. The COVID-19 coronavirus is no different.
Gifts will help us continue to serve our patients in need throughout this crisis and adapt to the changing realities of providing home health care during an epidemic. The Coronavirus Response Fund provides necessary support and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to our frontline staff to keep them safe, helps us meet the growing demand for telehealth, and gets our support staff the technology they need to work remotely.
Due to the sudden explosion in demand, we are facing a dangerous shortage of these critical supplies:
Surgical/flu masks | Face shields | N95 masks | Isolation gowns | Goggles | Hand sanitizer | Single-use gloves
Do you (or someone you know) have any of these supplies, in any amount? Your donation could save lives!
