The Freeholders remind residents that Monmouth County’s healthcare workers and first responders are in desperate need of personal protective equipment which has become increasingly scarce due to the ongoing battle against COVID-19.

“We are happy to report that there have already been a number of donations of personal protective equipment,” Freeholder Deputy Director Sue Kiley said. “While we are grateful for these donations, our healthcare workers and first responders are still in desperate need for more.”

Donations of personal protective equipment items are being accepted at Thompson Park, 805 Newman Springs Road, in Lincroft, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Monday through Friday.

“We are thankful to the 24 donors who have visited the site and provided much needed supplies which are being distributed to first responders, healthcare workers and other essential workforce employees,” Freeholder Director Arnone said. “The Donation Center was operational for 10 days and 2,294 masks, 89,900 gloves, 408 gowns/protective suits along with numerous bottles of hand sanitizer were received. We are extremely grateful to all the donors.”

Anyone who still wishes to donate can contact the County Office of Emergency Management at 732-431-7400.
