TOMS RIVER – The New Jersey Devils and two owners made a “significant and impactful donation” to an emergency fund that will help buy protective items for medical staff.
The donation by Josh Harris, David Blitzer and the New Jersey Devils was announced by RWJBarnabas Health. RWJBarnabas is the official healthcare provider for the NJ Devils. Locally, they operate Community Medical Center in Toms River, Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, and Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus in Lakewood.
The Emergency Response Fund was created for the community to help support medical needs in times of crisis.
