The Cosmopolitan Junior Soccer League recently made a $1,000 donation to NY Loves Coffee and Elmhurst Hospital.
The donation was made to give healthcare workers a token of appreciation from the league for the work that they are doing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Elmhurst Hospital was hit very hard by cases and patient deaths in the early days of the pandemic.
“The CJSL, on behalf of its member clubs, donated 400 cups of iced coffee and iced tea plus 100 doughnuts to Elmhurst Hospital through NY Loves Coffee, an initiative for individuals and corporations to contribute coffee to be delivered for free to New York City hospitals,” CJSL first vice president Paul Kontonis said. “A free cup of coffee is a token of appreciation and thanks for everything our New York City healthcare workers are doing.”
