Sherrill House Pattyanne Lyons [l], Director of Development at Sherrill House and Dawn Collins, Assistant Director of Nursing and from Dorchester, after thanking Feeney Brothers and accepting a donation of masks and gloves.
Dorchester Utility Service Company Feeney Brothers has donated N95 masks and protective supplies to various medical facilities around the city of Boston, as word comes that hospitals, nursing homes and care facilities are desperately in need of these items during the COVID-9 outbreak.
According to Brendan Feeney, who together with his brother Greg, own Feeney Brothers, "We have been doing business here for years and it's part of our reponsibility to give back to the community when we can."
900 masks and supplies were delivered today to Boston Medical Center, the Bostonian Nursing Home in Neponset, Codman Square Health Center, and the Sherrill House Nursing Home in Jamaica Plain. The brothers also expanded their reach into a New Bedford Nursing Home which houses relatives of some of the company's employees.
Pattyanne Lyons of Sherrill House tells BostonIrish, "These donations are greatly appreciated, especially for a center like Sherrill House that is caring for one of the most vulnerable populations in Boston, none with COVID-19, although Sherrill House is prepared."
BostonIrish would like to remind our readers to take every precaution to avoid contracting COVID-19 by washing hands and maintaining physical distance from others until the risks have lessened.
