NFL Alumni Association and Covalent Chemical Donate to NY Presbyterian Hospital
NFL Alumni Rallys Enterprise Network to Donate Supplies to New York City and NJ to Stop the Spread of COVID-19
NFL Alumni are teaming up with corporate partners to deliver much needed relief items to New York and New Jersey’s healthcare workers on the front lines.
To fulfill its mission of “Caring for Kids” and giving back to the community, the NFL Alumni Association donates one-hundred percent of net proceeds from enterprise memberships and donations to vulnerable children and communities, and towards taking care of retired NFL players in need. In return, alumni promote and make appearances for enterprise members.
“We’re rallying NFL Alumni supporters because we know their generosity and proven success as innovators can make a huge impact for COVID-19 relief efforts in New York City and nationwide,” said Bart Oates, NFL Alumni Association President and former New York Giant from 1985-1993. “We have to work as a team, and we’ll get through these difficult and uncertain times together. To everyone in New York, our hearts go out to you - we’ve got your back.”
NFLA and its members are planning an on-going effort to donate supplies and respond to healthcare workers’ needs as the COVID-19 situation evolves. This week’s goal is to distribute the first truck load of hand sanitizer and disinfectant to hospitals, while recruiting more enterprise partners to donate supplies and get involved.
Covalent Chemical is a proud supporter of the NFLA and was the first company to make a donation, pledging 880 gallons of Covalent Clean ECOSAFE disinfectant to NY Presbyterian Hospital. The donation will be delivered next week.
"This is really a wonderful offer and we’re very appreciative.
We will put it to good use."
