Earlier this week, WANADA made a $50,000 donation to MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, to help support its work screening and treating patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As the COVID-19 crisis continues to spread across the world, hospitals are being stretched to the limits, while doctors, nurses, and support staff members are putting themselves at risk to heroically provide care to at-risk patients. WANADA, through this donation, is supporting a vital institution in our region at their time of greatest need.
“MedStar Georgetown staff members are on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, working tirelessly to help save lives,” WANADA Chairman Kevin Reilly said. “WANADA, and our member auto dealers, are thankful for their service to the Washington metro area in this critical time of need.”
“MedStar Georgetown University Hospital is deeply grateful for this remarkable gift of support from WANADA,” said Hospital president Mike Sachtleben. “This gift will further enable us to strengthen our efforts in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is an unprecedented time in our Nation and this Hospital’s history, and I want to express our sincere thanks to the members of WANADA and those in our community who have given so generously of themselves to help support our mission during this critical time.”
