Ramapo Professor of Finance Murray Sabrin and his wife Florence we inspired by other colleagues to show their appreciation for those on the front lines. The Sabrins thanked the nurses at Englewood Hospital with 84 “goodie bags” of snacks and treats. They delivered the donation to a special Englewood Foundation drop-off site in Teaneck, N.J.
Nursing Career Choice Reinforced
Nursing student Kayla Gill ’22 began volunteering for the Common Health Project in May in an effort to give back to the courageous healthcare workers in need of essential protection. This organization has created more than 10,000 shields since it started in April. Kayla helps construct 10-20 shields per week and delivers the completed shields to various healthcare facilities. Said Kayla, “As a nursing major, this pandemic has made me want to pursue my career choice even more, so I wanted to help in any way possible. Volunteering for the Common Health Project has been rewarding and has allowed me to connect with my community, knowing that the face shields are going to places where they are truly needed. I am looking forward to continuing the construction of face shields for as long as they are needed to show my gratitude to doctors, nurses, technicians, and other workers.”
