Students at Sussex County Community College continue with a fundraiser that brings much-needed masks to first responders and medical staff in the area.

Two Sussex students, Lillian Kornmeyer and Scott Raghubir, came up with the idea to support first responders with necessary masks while also helping Sussex students who are in need of additional funds for their education. Their plan was to get N95 masks into the hands of first responders and to Atlantic Health Systems (at Newton Hospital) workers.

The first round of masks along with “thank you” bracelets were delivered to the Andover Nursing home this past Friday on behalf of the College and the donors to the program.

Donations can be made online through the Campus Store at
