The veterans support group Swim with a Mission handed off 140 N95 masks and gowns to help stock the NH Veterans Home with much needed equipment. The organization worked with Recovery Logistics Network to secure the equipment. Founder of RLN, Joe Matarese and SWAM board member Mark Prestipino made this donation possible by securing the PPE’s. The company has now delivered almost 3 million vital pieces of safety equipment to hospitals and organizations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Swim With A Mission also delivered some holiday treats to keep spirits up, including Easter baskets, candy, bird feeders, MP3 players and headphones.“These birdfeeders will be outside their windows to get some of that isolation away,” said Margaret LaBrecque from the New Hampshire Veterans Home Commandant. “The gowns and masks will protect our staff as they care for our veterans and candy always goes a long way.”
