Montefiore is now spending more than $12,000 each week on the cost of PPE (personal protective equipment) to help safeguard our vulnerable residents and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year, rather than holding an Annual Raffle, the Montefiore Foundation is asking our supporters to donate the equivalent ticket price instead towards the cost of PPE. This cost of $600,000+ per annum is just one of the considerable additional expenses we are facing as a result of COVID-19, in addition to the $4 million per annum the Foundation already contributes to subsidised residential care for those in need.
Here’s how your donation can help:
$8 buys 1 week of surgical masks for a staff member = 1 raffle ticket
$40 buys 6 face shields = 5 raffle tickets
$70 buys 1 box of gloves = 1 book of 10 raffle tickets
$140 buys 1 box of gowns = 2 raffle ticket books
$700 buys 1 day of surgical masks for all staff = 10 raffle ticket books
Join us to protect those most at risk in our community and stay a step ahead of COVID-19.
