Corning, NY – As hospitals across the country work hard to coordinate vaccine distribution, many local companies, organizations and individuals are continuing to show their support to frontline staff. The North Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters Local 277 recently donated $1,000 to fund personal protection equipment (PPE) for Guthrie’s frontline staff.
“There is no question how great the need is to ensure the safety and protection of our healthcare workers as they care for COVID-19 patients. It is a privilege to give back to the hospitals in our communities that have been the lifelines for those affected by Coronavirus since the start of the pandemic last year. We are grateful to be able to support our healthcare workers so they can continue safely providing care to those who need it most,” said Jim Mason, Local 277 Team Lead, North Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters.
Felissa Koernig, President, Guthrie Corning Hospital said, “While the world continues to find its footing, the silver lining of this pandemic has been the outpouring of generosity, kindness, and the true desire to help one another. Guthrie feels fortunate to have supportive community partners during these challenging times.”
