Peter Nemer is the company’s vice president. He thanked the hospital workers for their dedication and sacrifice. He said, “We appreciate the sacrifices and wonderful work done by the entire staff at Saint Peter's Hospital and wanted to do our part.

Eric Nemer Spoke about the $27,000 donation to Saint Jude. He said, “with most national and local charities facing a shortage of funding this year, it’s important to do what we are able, when we are able.

I’m sure the hospital employees who are diligently working to save lives, really need the funding for PPE and I’m sure they are grateful.

Even though all of us are not able to make such generous donations to people in need, we should all follow the words of Eric Nemer and do what we are able to do when we are able to do it.
