“Just wanted to send a note to all our the healthcare workers on the frontlines… you are heroes, and we are so incredibly grateful for all of your time and sacrifices,” Collins posted alongside a photo of hospital workers receiving boxes of equipment.
“I’m beyond honored to join @bethennyfrankel’s #BSTRONG initiative to support the doctors and nurses at @yourmlkch by providing masks and much needed PPE during this time. While Bethenny and her partners are working to supply hospitals all over the country with supplies, I chose to start local – remembering that if we all do our part where we can, we can make a greater impact as a whole,” the “To the Bone” star continued.
“Constantly inspired by people coming together in times of crisis, such as this one. Sending so much love and light. Thank you again Bethenny for starting this great movement and allowing me to be part of it…”
Frankel has been dedicating her philanthropic organization’s efforts to providing PPE to health care workers fighting the on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic. In March, the former “Real Housewives of New York City” star donated 250,000 N95 masks to New York City hospitals.
“We will have distributed over $16 million worth of aid this week and that will grow exponentially,” she told “Extra” in early April.
