AllOne Foundation & Charities is administering the NEPA Nursing Home SOS program, short for “Supply Operate Save,”  designed by Senator John Yudichak and in partnership with The Pennsylvania Health Care Association and LeadingAge PA for long-term care organizations in Northeast and North Central Pennsylvania. The program was created to assist nursing homes with the purchase of much-needed supplies during the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic. To date,  more than 800,000 items have been distributed. 

The NEPA Nursing Home SOS Program has raised over $1 million since it was established in April and has helped more than 30 facilities in Luzerne, Lackawanna, Carbon and Monroe counties.

Yudichak joined other program participants at The Meadows campus in Dallas Township to provide an update on the progress of the public and private partnership.  Here are some clips of the press from the event:
