LAKEWOOD, N.J. - A truck loaded with supplies left for New Jersey for Houston Aug. 30. AvaCare Medical, an online medical supply store, donated thousands of dollars worth of supplies and equipment for flooded nursing home and other victims of devastating Hurricane Harvey. Donations included first aid supplies, gauze, bandages walkers, adult diapers, wipes, reusable and disposable underpads, medical gloves, creams, mouthwash and shampoo.“With more and more news pouring in about Harvey's victims, we realized that as a medical supply company, we are uniquely positioned to offer support to Houston even from our location in New Jersey,” said CEO Steven Zeldes. “Since we have the resources to help, we feel like it is not only an opportunity but an obligation to pitch in when so many people need help so badly."
