Rockland Readies Donations To Hurricane Relief Effort In Haiti

Oct 14, 2016

Rockland County is donating surplus medical supplies to the Haitian hurricane relief effort.

Rockland County Executive Ed Day says supplies from the now closed Summit Park nursing home will be donated to local groups assisting with Hurricane Matthew relief efforts in Haiti. Day met Thursday with local leaders of the Haitian relief efforts in the laundry room of the former nursing home, and they looked through items that the county could donate, such as bed sheets, towels, patient gowns, baby powder, shaving cream, and toothbrushes. The Rockland County Legislature has to declare the supplies surplus before they are donated. The County Executive's office is preparing a resolution for the Legislature to approve the donation.
