Care packages for SLPs working on the frontlines

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many hospital-based speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are on the frontlines of caring for COVID-19 patients. Patients affected by COVID-19 may present with impaired swallowing, voice, and often cognitive-communication skills. These patients are left  with a long list of challenges, requiring rehabilitation and probable lifelong battles for health and function. Many hospital-based SLPs are helping patients by assessing and providing therapy to those using communication boards to communicate their needs, those regaining their ability to speak after being intubated, those who have difficulty eating or swallowing as a result of intubation, and much more. As a thank you for their service during this time, Northeastern University's Student Speech, Language, and Hearing Association (NUSSLHA) chapter would like your help in sending care packages to the speech-language pathologists working in hospitals within the city of Boston and the surrounding areas! 

These care packages would include the following items:

- face tape (to protect skin from tight masks & other Personal Protective Equipment)
- hand lotion (to nourish hands dried out from sanitizer)
- face wipes
- mints
- candy
- chocolate
- coffee gift cards
- lip balm
- hair elastics
- Lens cleaner (for glasses / eye PPE)


Thank you for helping us show our support for these incredibly courageous and tough superheroes on the frontlines!
