Construction company donates masks to GMC

DANVILLE– When their business stalled due to the coronavirus, Tim Clark, vice president of operations at Zartman Construction, Northumberland, saw an opportunity to give back. The construction company decided to give several cases of N95 masks – normally used for demolition work – to Geisinger.

“The reality of the situation is we are pretty much at a standstill, can’t use them, and Geisinger needs them,” Clark said. “We like to think we are a good partner in the community and Geisinger is an important partner to us. This is something we could do in return.”

Geisinger is currently well-positioned to address the challenges of the shortage of supplies, but the health system welcomes and very much appreciates donations from anyone who would like to help protect their friends and neighbors during this unprecedented time.

Our wish-list items include:

— N95 or dust masks

— Nitrile or latex gloves

–Electric construction heaters for our outdoor screening tents

We ask that groups and individuals please do not make donations directly to the hospital locations but instead call to set up your donation. To donate supplies or to make a monetary donation, call 800-739-6882 or visit geisinger.org/fightcovid.
