Community Hero of the Week: F&F Properties Donates Thousands of Masks to Hospitals & Tenants
As many already know, there has been a major mask shortage at hospitals around the country, including the San Diego region. To help mitigate this problem, F&F Properties, a North Park property development and housing provider, purchased and donated over 2,000 KN95 masks to Scripps Mercy Hospital, Sharp Mary Birch Hospital, as well as the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. The F&F Properties team has also made more than 10,000 disposable masks and sanitation kits available to all building tenants and both current and former staff, along with their families.
Additionally, in an effort to support both small businesses and first responders working the beaches, F&F Properties owner Dan Feder purchased over 100 meals to support struggling local restaurants and safely delivered them to police officers, lifeguards and other essential workers from Oceanside down to Imperial Beach.
“Just like other housing providers across the country, we’re doing what we can to give back to our own community,” said Feder. “I hope these small acts of kindness will inspire others to contribute as well.” Feder also wanted to thank his team, “I could not do any of this without the F&F Properties team, I’m proud to say I work with the most thoughtful and empathetic people.”
WE APPRECIATE YOU F&F PROPERTIES.
