MORRISTOWN, NJ - The Morristown community has been rallying around doctors, nurses, first responders and businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now a Morristown resident, hospital employee and member of the Morristown High School community needs our help.

Darell Johnson, a Morristown High School employee who worked in the guidance department and a healthcare worker at Morristown Medical Center has contracted COVID-19. According to the GoFundMe page, he has been hospitalized since March 23. Due to complications, he has been on a ventilator and undergone a tracheostomy, the page said.

His medical bills are mounting. The hospital stay, even with insurance will cost thousands and the fundraiser organizer, hopes to raise money so that he won't have to worry about his financial bills.
