Last week, NJCU donated 400 Nitrile gloves, 200 masks, and 100 gowns to Jersey City Medical Center, as the University continues to identify ways to help the medical community in the ongoing fight against coronavirus.
Dr. Scott Mittman, Associate Dean of Sciences in the William J. Maxwell College of Arts & Sciences led the charge earlier this month by coordinating the donation of 175 safety goggles and 600 medical and dental masks from the University's science labs, which were also donated to the Jersey City Medical Center.
NJCU Student Affairs is also initiating a volunteer effort with students to make non-sew masks in an effort to offer assistance.
Our community can make ta positive difference, and NJCU prides itself on serving the community any way that it can. Do you have a story to share? We'd love to hear from you as we share the good works of the NJCU community via our #NJCUKindnessCampaign.
NJCU Kindness Campaign
During this unprecedented time of the COVID-19 global health pandemic, we are hearing from so many individuals about things they are doing -- large and small -- to care for loved ones, help those in need, or simply do their part to follow CDC guidelines and Governor Murphy's Stay at Home Order.
If you have a story to share about kindness that has been shown to you, or a way that you are helping someone in your family or community, we'd love to hear from you. We ask each of you to consider one small act of kindness that you might do today -- a phone call or text to a classmate, colleague, or loved one, a trip to the grocery store for a high-risk individual -- anything that helps lighten the burden for someone you know.
Send your story, photo, or video link to firstname.lastname@example.org, and remember, every act of kindness counts!
