Shore Medical Center is appealing for the public's help to fight the coronavirus outbreak.
A letter from Mary McGuckin, manager of the Lightkeeper's Society at Shore Medical Center, details how the community can pitch in.
Her letter follows.
Billy Godfrey and friends Andrew Moon, Tony Wilson and Steve McKusker were doing the right things.
Like most Ocean City residents and visitors, the men were self-quarantined in their homes, practicing social distancing and venturing out and about only when necessary, and for approved reasons.
The worldwide coronavirus pandemic had forced them to adhere to the so-called “new normal,” and they were doing so.
“But we felt we had to do more than that,” Godfrey said.
They did. They searched the internet and found and bought a supply of medical-grade masks. Now they have donated the masks to two local hospitals, the State Police and a nonprofit group called OCNJ CARE that is helping people affected by the coronavirus crisis.
