Covid-19 Story
Peter J. Randall, Owner /President of North Grove Enterprises - an MDG Boston Sponsor.
From his recent LinkedIn PostThis week I received a package from a wonderful friend in China. She said I hear you are having many problems in the US with Covid-19, and I have these face masks available and will send to you. When I received them this week, I walked them down the street to a neighbor who works in a local hospital. When she saw them, she nearly broke out in tears. She informed me that at the hospital, they have been told that anyone near a patient must reuse a single face mask for the entire week. This is so wrong in so many ways. A simple gesture by someone far away, with kindness in her heart. Thank you Dora! I am honored to work with you
