In the wake of the global coronavirus pandemic, our world has been filled with difficult and anxiety-provoking news. From VLS Pharmacy and New Drug Loft, here are a few pieces of good news from our community. The following is proof that when we work together, we can make a difference and be stronger for it.
1500 hours of overtime worked by our committed staff to meet the needs of our patients across the country
Hundreds of bottles of hand sanitizer donated to frontline workers
$1,300 raised for NYC Health + Hospitals COVID-19 Relief Fund (and you can help us raise more! We are donating 100% of the proceeds for our IV Therapy webinar to this important cause, or you can donate directly anytime).
Hundreds of hydroxychloroquine scripts filled for COVID-19 patients as well as individuals with systemic lupus or rheumatoid arthritis who are struggling to access this critical medication.
“I spoke to my doctor yesterday and he is so grateful for the connection to your pharmacy. He has been able to fill many, many prescriptions for his patients that were otherwise having a very difficult time locating their medication. You have helped so many ♥ ” – Janna DeRisi, Cold Spring Harbor, NY
Countless words of encouragement and kindness that have helped us get through these long days.
To our pharmacy community of patients, prescribers, vendors, and neighbors, thank you for the support, from the calls and emails to the late-night texts checking in on our staff. It all matters. We know we will get through this and be stronger for it!
With gratitude and appreciation,
The VLS and New Drug Loft Family
