State Rep. Wendi Thomas (R-178) will hold a non-contact collection event to help long-term care facilities. “As we continue to address issues resulting from the coronavirus, we see the devastation at our long-term care facilities in our district,” Thomas said. “To support the most vulnerable, we have reached out to these facilities to assist them in this crisis. Right now, they need a number of items to keep their residents and staff safe.”
The items deemed most helpful and that Thomas will be collecting include:
• Gloves of all sizes, masks, gowns, shields, hand sanitizer and infrared thermometers.
• Activity items, games and coloring books.
• Letters and homemade cards to residents and health care staff from adults or children.
The collection will take place on Thursday, May 14, from 2-4 p.m., in the parking lot of Thomas’s Richboro office at 1038 Second Street Pike. “Just pull up and we will remove items from your car,” Thomas said.
