New York Private Jet Completion Center Fabricates Masks To Donate To Essential Workers
The team at International Jet Interiors in Ronkonkoma, New York is lending their expertise to first responders in New York during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Like so many states throughout the country, New York's need for masks for essential workers on the front line has been both overwhelming and dire.
The IJI Design Team enlisted the help of Pollack Associates which generously donated 100 percent cotton material that International Jet Interiors used to fabricate protective masks. To date, 1500 masks have been produced by the IJI team and donated to local NY and surrounding state hospitals. Protective masks were donated to Huntington Hospital, St. Joseph Hospital, Syosset Hospital/Northwell Health, Plainview Hospital/Northwell Health, and Brockton Hospital. Additionally, St. Catherine's Hospital, Baystate Medical Center, Ronald McDonald House Charities facility in New Hyde Park, Hauppauge Fire Department-Sub Station 1, Oyster Bay Fire Department and other essential workers received hand crafted masks as well.
Fortunate to be able to share their craft in a unique and transformative way during this unprecedented time, International Jet Interiors is immeasurably thankful to all of the essential workers, doctors, nurses, hospital staff , and first responders for their dedication and best efforts in this challenging environment.
International Jet Interiors President, Eric H. Roth shares, "my wife Adrianne and I were watching the news early one morning in the beginning phases of the pandemic, and we knew immediately we needed to utilize the upholstery department of the company to make masks. The sentiment was shared by all of our employees, and we join together as a big family to thank all essential workers for keeping our communities well cared for during this unprecedented and difficult time."
