ILA Receives Much-needed Donation of N-95 Masks

Mar 30, 2020

Independent Living Association has recently received a much-needed donation of N-95 masks which will be distributed to the staff of its group homes.

Thanks to the diligent work of Francis Delucia, the son of ILA’s Deputy Executive Director/Chief Financial Officer, Frank Delucia, the masks will be helpful in protecting the staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Arthur Palevsky, the Executive Director of ILA and the entire staff and administration, in addition to thanking Francis, would like to thank the following firms and companies for the donation of the masks.

* EASTEND GROUP * RESCUING FAMILIES, INC * QUICK-CAST MEDIA * JMS TECHNOLOGY * LAKESIDE MASON SUPPLIES * A LOT MAINTENANCE *

If you’re reading this message, please think of any company you know that has Personal Protective Equipment (masks, gloves and gowns). ILA is in sore need of these items to keep people with developmental disabilities healthy as well as the staff who are risking their own health to care for these Individuals. Call Arthur Palevsky with any donations, connections or ideas you have 917.613.5622.
