To help them be at their best in their fight against COVID-19, Adidas donated 130 pairs of sneakers to the healthcare professionals at Mount Sinai Queens hospital.
“Of course, the ED Staff were super excited to get them,” Mount Sinai spokesperson Kathy Rubenstein said, using an acronym for the emergency department. “They spend most of their shift on their feet and wear sneakers every day. A new pair is a both a great pick me up and super practical.”
The donation was helped made a reality by Loic Villepontoux who happens to be friends with Mount Sinai Queens Chief of Emergency Medicine Ugo Ezenkwele as well as longtime business associate of Pharrell Williams.
A spokesman said the sneakers were distributed to nurses, physicians, PAs, unit clerks, medical assistants, and registrars across both day and night shifts.
