In March 2020, as COVID-19 was ravaging through our area, a reader of MyVeronaNJ set up a fundraiser to help feed the healthcare workers at Hackensack Meridian Health Mountainside Hospital. It quickly surpassed its $20,000 goal, which was spent buying food from local businesses to feed the workers trying to save people infected with the virus.

Now, with COVID cases surging, the fundraiser has been reopened. “…today the hospital is again full of COVID-19 patients, the GoFundMe summary reads. “The triage tent is up again in the parking lot and Mountainside community vaccination clinic has closed due to staff shortages and to limit exposure. Many healthcare workers have left the profession and the doctors, nurses, techs and cafeteria workers who remain often test positive themselves – which means double shifts and scarcer meal breaks for those working.”

    Our team has contacted the organizer with a solution, and donations will resume once the issue is resolved.

    Please reach out to the organizer and ask them to sign in to GoFundMe and check their account to resolve the issue.
