NEW YORK, April 29, 2020: A wonderful act of gratitude for the 800 nurses in temporary residence at The New Yorker Hotel who left their families to come to NYC for the COVID-19 response. Bags of gratitude and appreciation were distributed to the nurses FROM FASHION WITH LOVE.

“We wanted to provide nurses who have temporary residences in NYC hotels with gift bags of clean, fresh, comfortable clothing and/or footwear that they can get into after a gut-wrenching day or night in the hospital. Let them leave their hospital shoes in the hall, pull on a pair of fresh clean socks, a new pair of sweatpants, a comfy T-shirt, and so on…” said Elyse N. Kroll, the event’s founder and organizer.

“The world is watching our HEROES. Every day, we witness nurses who step up to take care of the sickest, regardless of personal risk. They worry about their patients, not themselves. Yet they put themselves out there continuously hoping to rescue those attacked by the world’s silent predator,” Kroll continued.

It was earlier this April when founder and former CEO of ENK International, Elyse N. Kroll announced the
formation of a not-for-profit effort, entitled FROM FASHION, WITH LOVE (“FFWL”) that will offer gift bags to nurses temporarily housed in hotels across the country. As of this writing there are approximately 2500 nurses in temporary residences in New York City as of now.
