VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — A Virginia Beach church has donated 4,000 respirator masks to Sentara Healthcare to help treat coronavirus.

Rock Church donated 1,000 N95 respirator masks to four Sentara hospitals on March 18, for a total of 4,000 masks.

The masks were given to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, Sentara Leigh Hospital, Sentara Princess Anne Hospital, and Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital.

The church wrote Sentara a letter acknowledging the short supply of respirator masks nationally and said:

“We at Rock Church would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your dedication and work in providing much-needed care for our community and loved ones…. We hope that this will help in some small measure, the battle that you are in against the coronavirus.”
