In these unprecedented times surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, seeing the people and businesses of Salem County unite to help support each other is inspirational.
SMC has received several donations from the surrounding community.
“Through their donations, the community has stepped up and really shown our staff that they care,” said Dr. Tammy Torres, SMC Chief Executive Officer. “It’s heartwarming to see these businesses and individuals supporting their community hospital.”
For example, the Delaware River and Bay Authority recently donated 500 N95 Masks and 250 pairs of gloves.
“These are critically needed resources in short supply,” said Dr. Torres. “It is times like these when our community partners such as the DRBA really step up to help make a difference.”
The hospital has received generous donations from local residents, eateries, and organizations.
