Montefiore has been spending more than $12,000 each week on the cost of PPE (personal protective equipment) to help safeguard our vulnerable residents and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year, rather than holding our Annual Raffle, the Montefiore Foundation is asking you to donate the equivalent ticket price instead towards the cost of PPE. This cost of $600,000+ per annum is just one of the ongoing additional expenses Montefiore has faced as a result of COVID-19, in addition to the $4 million per annum the Foundation already contributes to subsidised residential care for those in need.
Here’s how your donation can help:
$8 buys 1 week of surgical masks for a staff member (equivalent to 1 raffle ticket)
$40 buys 6 face shields (equivalent to5 raffle tickets)
$70 buys 1 box of gloves (equivalent to 1 book of 10 raffle tickets)
$140 buys 1 box of gowns (equivalent to 2 raffle ticket books)
$700 buys 1 day of surgical masks for all staff (equivalent to 10 raffle ticket books)
Join us to protect those most at risk in our community and stay a step ahead of COVID-19.
