All the Ways to Help Hospitals in Need of Resources in Hoboken, Jersey City, + Beyond

Written by:

If there’s one place that could universally use resources right now, it’s hospitals. Hospitals across the world,  state, and right here in Hudson County are in dire need of supplies + additional resources to help staff members successfully treat + battle COVID-19. With each passing day, it seems as if the virus is becoming omnipresent {even more so than it already is} and that means that our hospitals are in need of additional resources ASAP. So much so, that Hoboken’s Mayor, Ravi Bhalla, even issued an “urgent appeal for additional medical resources.

Dire news aside, however, there are a number of ways that we can help on both a local and national scale. We’ve rounded up a number of hospital-related resources + causes to contribute to, hopefully, help the greater good. Here’s how you can help:
