Iona Prep Sets Example for Young Men with Generous Donation to St. Joseph’s

Students and faculty at Iona Preparatory School in New Rochelle made a generous donation to the healthcare staff at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Yonkers.  Iona Prep delivered to the hospital much-needed medical supplies, including 1,000 nitrate gloves, 200 plastic bibs, 30 safety goggles and 2,500 personal hand sanitizer spray bottles, along with more than 75 pounds of food for healthcare workers.  It was a true schoolwide effort, as administrators and facilities personnel coordinated with Iona Prep’s Department of Campus Ministry to collate and inventory supplies from both the Lower and Upper Schools.

“Our daily mission is to teach our young men to be moral and ethical leaders and, as a result, it seemed natural to offer up our unused supplies to our brothers and sisters in need. Many of our families are doing the same,’’ said Brother Thomas R. Leto, Ed.D., President of Iona Prep.

Michael Spicer, President and CEO of Saint Joseph’s Medical Center said, “We are deeply grateful for the generosity of the students and faculty at Iona Prep. Our healthcare staff is working tirelessly and appreciates this generous donation of medical supplies during this critical time,” said Michael Spicer, President and CEO of Saint Joseph’s Medical Center.
