NovaCare Partners with 76ers on Masks for Areas of Needs
Posted on 7/9/2020
NovaCare Rehabilitation proudly partnered with the Philadelphia 76ers to help local communities remain healthy and safe during the coronavirus pandemic. The two organizations are donating 10,000 masks to areas of need in Philadelphia and Camden, N.J., where the team is headquartered.
In partnership with the Sixers Youth Foundation, the masks will be donated to Camden Health & Athletic Association, Food Corps, Cathedral Kitchen, Playworks, Salvation Army Krocs Center, LUCY Outreach, Camden County School District, KIPP Schools, Philabundance, Food Bank of South Jersey and Camden County Department of Human Services. These organizations were pre-selected based off demonstrated need and its history with the foundation and NovaCare.
“We are proud to collaborate with our more than 30-year partner, the Sixers, to provide masks in the communities we serve to promote health, safety and well-being,” said NovaCare Rehabilitation President Dan Bradley.
Masks are mandatory in Philadelphia if you’re outside in public areas to help stop the spread of COVID-19, and these stylish masks are branded with each organizations’ marks.
“These are communities in need that really don’t have easy access to masks,” said Katie O’Reilly, the Sixers’ chief marketing officer. “Our foundation spends the bulk of its work in the city of Philadelphia and Camden, so they have a great understanding of that. We wanted to help, and obviously so did NovaCare.”
