Deerfield students Mark Chung ’21, Gabriella Hu ’21, Harry Niles ’21, Angela Osei-Ampadu ’21, and Eric Wang ’21 have teamed up to form Shielding Our Defenders: an organization that is sourcing and suppling medical-grade masks to New York City hospitals. The students have solicited donations to purchase masks and donated them to various hospitals in the US. So far, they have shipped over 1,320 FDA-approved masks to Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx and NYU Langone. Their efforts were featured on Bronx News 12 yesterday. Bravo Mark, Gabriella, Harry, Angie, and Eric!
