Defending the Commonwealth is a benefit compilation to raise money to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic. All profits from this release are being donated to the Massachusetts General Hospital Emergency Relief Fund. These courageous individuals are fighting a war on the front lines like one we have not seen before. Cassette includes digital download card.
Here are a few of the ways the dollars are being put to work.
- Development of an in-house testing capability, to meet the needs of the patients and health care workers.
- Purchase of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for health care workers.
- Innovative solutions for device development and production (3D printing for masks for example).
- Support of COVID-19 Hotline for patients, in particular staffing the operation with an adequate number of interpreters to help non-English speaking patients access information.
- Enhancement of telemedicine capabilities, to ensure patients have a reasonable alternative to physically visiting the hospital, thereby averting possible exposure to the virus.
- Subsidization of childcare costs for essential hospital employees, whose children are home due to school closures.
36 Bands, 10 Labels, and 90 minutes of hardcore. All for a great cause.
