LIVINGSTON, NJ — A second shipment of face masks collected by a group of Chinese residents has been delivered to the Livingston Police Department, which has shared these supplies with two senior living facilities and hospitals.
According to the department, the 8,000 face masks will be used to help police department and other Livingston public services and people.
“I want to thank all of the groups and associations who have reached out to the police department offering their assistance,” said Chief of Police Gary Marshuetz. “Livingston is a diverse community that always comes together when it matters the most. The Chinese Association and their friends really came through on Friday with a generous donation of masks. The police department will keep just enough for our own needs and share the rest with Livingston care facilities in dire need.”
Over the last 10 days, about 40 Chinese families from Livingston have used their connections in China to collect face masks and other supplies to be donated to those in need.
Last week, the group successfully delivered 9,000 face masks and other personal protective equipment to Saint Barnabas Medical Center. Essential products have also been donated to Livingston Township, the Livingston post office, Hackettstown Hospital and Teaneck Hospital.
