The USS Comfort, a naval hospital boat, arrived to New York City on March 31 and was moored at pier 90 on the West Side of Manhattan. It has 1,000 hospital beds.
The pandemic has been a challenge for everyone. Although I have been laid off from my job, we are all healthy and OK.
I’ve kept askng myself, “What can I do to help?” I’m not a healthcare worker, so I know I cannot contribute that way. But I realized that my shea lotions are perfect for the hero nurses and doctors, who must frequently use hand sanitizers and soap.
So, I’m going to make as much of my Easy Living hand salve as I can and donate it to local hospitals here in New York City. There are three hospitals within a short distance. This is the time for each of us to think about what we can do in the face of so much suffering.
I’ve set up a GoFundMe page for Shea Healing Hands – Please help if you can! I will use whatever funds to cover the cost of materials. I will keep you updated on the effort!
I hope you and your family are well during this difficult time,
