RANDOLPH, NJ- Despite the global crisis, Faculty Association of County College of Morris blood drive continued with the unfaltering support of volunteers who turned out to the Randolph YMCA on April 7.

The blood drive was originally scheduled for CCM’s campus, but with the outbreak of COVID-19 was moved to the new venue. Currently facing a severe blood shortage, the Red Cross thanks FACCM for “making such a huge impact in a timeof critical need.”

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, FACCM members generously donated funds to assist Wind of the Spirit’s relief efforts throughout Morris County. As of April 20th, the fundraiser hit $2,750--more than half of our $5,000 goal. Donations support Wind of the Spirit’s efforts to deliver non-perishable food and PPE (personal protective equipment), as well as safeguard workplace and renter rights throughout Morris County’s most vulnerable communities.

The group reached out to FACCM after a spike in requests from CCM students and their families grappling with the effects of COVID-19. Wind of the Spirit describes itself as a group motivated by the “tradition of hospitality” in its spirited support for immigrant communities. They work hard throughout our local areas of Dover, Madison, and Morristown by providing advocacy that strengthens leadership in social and political sectors.

For those who wish to donate, there is still time:
