Hennessey delivers N95 masks to SE Veterans Center

State Rep. Tim Hennessey

SPRING CITY – State Representative Tim Hennessey (R-26) visited Southeastern Veterans Center (SEVC) recently to deliver three hundred N95 masks for the veterans in residence at the center.

“I asked my son to locate these masks and I purchased them so our veterans can be safe and secure in place,” Hennessey said in a statement. “We owe our veterans not only our thanks, but also concrete steps to make them feel extra special and protected during this pandemic.  Purchasing these masks is my way of helping our veterans.”

“I’ve been in frequent contact with staff at Southeastern Veterans Center and with the Pennsylvania Department of Military & Veterans Affairs at Fort Indiantown Gap, which oversees our state veterans homes.  They are doing all they can to see us through this crisis.”

“The Southeastern Veterans Center is a nationally-recognized medical center and one of the gems of Pennsylvania’s state Veterans Home system,” noted Hennessey.  “Regular medical and nursing staff are being assisted by both the Pennsylvania National Guard and the federal Veterans Administration (VA) hospital in Coatesville.  Medical detachments are on-site at Southeast Veterans Center to maintain excellent medical and nursing services for our veterans.”

This is the second order of N95 masks which Hennessey has purchased.  In April, he delivered one hundred masks to fire companies and paramedic services across the 26th Legislative District.  Hennessey has an additional seven hundred masks that will be delivered to police, fire and ambulance departments this week.

“This pandemic came upon us without much warning, and has hit us very hard, especially in southeast Pennsylvania.  I am committed to doing my part to ensure they remain safe throughout this pandemic.”
