Smith connects police, healthcare unions with PPE

Rep. Chris Smith helped police and healthcare unions secure thousands of pieces of personal protective equipment, the congressman announced Thursday.

Ansell, an Iselin-based healthcare products company, donated the masks and gowns to the New Jersey State Troopers union and the Health Care Professionals and Allied Employees, a union representing nurses and other healthcare professionals.

“The troopers and nurses launched their donation drive to solicit donations of PPE, and Ansell’s contributions are a welcome addition,” Smith said. “A big thanks to the troopers and HPAE for working together to run this donation drive and bring more protective equipment to those working on the front lines of the coronavirus outbreak.”
