Meggie Jones, founder of NutrientSoak.com, has partnered with Edward Frasier, vice president of public relations at Northwell Health (representing 68,000 doctors and nurses in their program), and top celebrities such as M*A*S*H star Loretta Swit (pictured right) as part of a joint effort to collect necessities to aid our frontline healthcare workers throughout the country during the COVID-19 pandemic. Together, they are attempting to get other companies to support those healthcare workers who are most at risk and help fulfill their specific needs.
In addition, Anson Williams (pictured right) and Joanna Connell, co-founders of AlertDrops.com, are donating multiple units of product to help keep EMTs keep alert naturally; Careismatic donated one million Cherokee and Dickie scrubs, while Estee Lauder recently donated two million surgical masks for those on the frontlines.
Jones and Frasier are asking companies, large and small, to donate items, if they can, to support the efforts of our frontline healthcare heroes. A list of needed items, as well as additional information, can be found at Nutrientsoak.com.
Actress Loretta Swit, whose portrayal of frontline Army nurse Margaret Houlihan on M*A*S*H inspired many people to pursue a career as a nurse or doctor, is among the many celebrities who have donated their time to this effort by posting video messages asking other companies to join in this important effort.
Other celebrities who have posted video pleas include Donna Mills (Knots Landing, pictured left), Anson Williams (Happy Days), Carolyn Hennesy (General Hospital), Ilene Graff (Mr. Belvedere), singer/actress Roslyn Kind, comedienne Judy Tenuta, and impressionist Rich Little.
