Staten Island Youth Soccer League distributes 12,000 masks throughout the borough
New York City has become a global hot spot in the coronavirus pandemic as 50 percent of city residents being tested are positive and thousands of people in the city have died.
Over the past two weeks, the Staten Island Youth Soccer League (SIYSL) has distributed masks to the EMT’s stationed in Fort Wadsworth, 19 firehouses, Staten Island University Hospital, the Department of Sanitation and MTA bus depots. Additionally, the league donated masks to Councilman Steven Matteo’s office, which gave 1,500 masks each to Carmel Richmond, Clove Lakes, Eger and Verrazano nursing homes.
”Thanks to the efforts of Treasurer Fred Cipriani and Development Officer Liz Morano, the league secured 12,000 disposable masks and distributed to our local hospitals, nursing homes, NYPD and FDNY first responders,” stated SIYSL President Bill Smith.
“This is a donation valued around $9,000 from the league to New York City. We believe it is important for the league to support our community and our constituents, many of whom are nurses, doctors, medical technicians plus members of the NYPD and FDNY,” Fred Cipriani, the league’s Treasurer, stated.
