“In this tumultuous time, ordinary people are stepping up to the plate to do extraordinary things,” said Doherty (R-23). “We need all hands on deck to beat this virus.

“WHRA’s proactive approach will help keep our medical personnel safe from COVID-19. To all donating and participating – thank you for your lifesaving endeavors.”

The materials for the masks have been ordered. They will be made by specifications from The Johns Hopkins Health System.

WHRA, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, has raised more than $6,000 out of their $20,000 to help fund this project. They are partnering with Warren Hills Regional High School, Special Technical Services (STS) in Hackettstown, and Mt. Olive High School.
