InfoAge Helping to Fight Virus

The masks were a leftover from Super Storm Sandy when NGNG and others built a Volunteer Center on the InfoAge campus

InfoAge of Wall Township has donated more than 1000 N-95 Healthcare Particulate respirator masks to Riverview Hospital and another 400 to Wall Township to help them fight the onslaught of the coronavirus.

The masks were a leftover from Super Storm Sandy when NGNG and others built a Volunteer Center on the InfoAge campus.  The excess masks were held in the event that there would be a need for them again.  That need has arrived and InfoAge was there to support its community.

InfoAge contacted Tim Hogan, president of Riverview Hospital in Red Bank, and asked by text if he would be interested in a donation of the masks.  He immediately texted back: “Yes! Absolutely!” and within one hour he drove through the InfoAge gates in his own SUV.  Less than 20 minutes later he was headed north on Route 18 to Red Bank.

At the same time, a sargeant from the Wall Police Department picked up several cases of the masks after InfoAge had contacted Jeff Bertrand, the Wall Township administrator, who said they were well needed and would be put to good use.

The masks will put Wall Township and Riverview emergency responders and team members in a better place with respect to their personal safety and ultimately their family’s safety.
