MONTVILLE, NJ – On March 23, Montville Township High School donated 3,000 pairs of Nitrile gloves to Morristown Medical Center.
Over the weekend, teacher James Queen initiated the discussion that led to this donation, according to Superintendent of Schools René Rovtar.
“After hearing about the dire need of our medical professionals needing personal protective equipment, I realized we had a supply of gloves at our high school that we could do without,” Queen explained. “I simply suggested to my supervisors that it seemed like a viable idea and they all agreed.”
Director of Facilities Steven Toth, who is also a first responder, volunteered to collect the gloves from the school and deliver them to the hospital.
“As a first responder, I am deeply grateful for your thought of the women and men out there confronting this virus every day,” he said.
Toth delivered the gloves to the drop box in front of the hospital.
Upon learning of the donation, Morristown Medical Center posted on the Montville Township Public Schools Facebook page: "Amazing how our community is rallying around our front line teams fighting COVID-19.”
