We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and well during this unprecedented and stressful time. There is no question that COVID-19 has permanently changed our view of disease and of our own vulnerability. We at the Newton South High School’s Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) Club feel tremendous gratitude to the countless healthcare workers who put their own lives on the line to help those afflicted with COVID-19. With that in mind, we have decided to mount our own campaign to help our local hospitals battle this pandemic.
There are two ways people can help:
First, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) is asking for iPads so hospitalized patients can talk to their loved ones at home. If you can donate your old iPads, we can all help reduce the social isolation for hospitalized patients. We can do a contact-free curbside pick-up if you live in the Greater Boston Area. All the patients and the hospital will undoubtedly appreciate it!
Here is the link if you are able to donate an iPad:
Second, if you do not have an old iPad but would still like to join us in our fight against COVID-19, we have also started a GoFundMe page to help the Massachusetts General Hospital and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center through their fights against COVID-19. Every dollar donated will go towards saving the life of a doctor, nurse, friend or neighbor. Even though we are all apart, we are all in this together!
Here is the link if you would like to donate money to our Go Fund Me:
Please consider donating to our iPad and fund campaigns so NSHS HOSA can help these wonderful local hospitals during this devastating COVID-19 crisis.
