There has been a major mask shortage at hospitals around the country, including the San Diego region. This past week, F&F Properties purchased and donated over 2,000 desperately needed KN95 masks to Scripps Mercy Hospital and Sharp Mary Birch Hospital. These masks are currently being distributed to medical professionals throughout several San Diego hospitals, so they are properly protected at this time. The F&F Properties team also donated KN95 masks to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.
In addition, Dan Feder, founder of F&F Properties and the F&F Properties team have made more than 10,000 disposable masks available to all building tenants and former staff, along with their families, spreading across 33 apartment communities in 18 different neighborhoods throughout San Diego County. The company has also equipped all current staff members with KN95 masks and sanitization kits.
And to support first responders working the beaches, Feder, his wife and four children facilitated lunch drop-offs throughout the county. Over a two-day period, the Feder family purchased over 100 meals to support struggling local restaurants and safely delivered them to police officers, lifeguards and other essential workers from Oceanside down to Imperial Beach.
“Just like other housing providers across the country, we’re doing what we can to give back to our own community,” said Feder. “I hope these small acts of kindness will inspire others to contribute as well. I find it is important to lead by example and give back during these times.” Feder also wanted to thank his team, “I could not do any of this without the F&F Properties team, I’m proud to say I work with the most thoughtful and empathetic people. They are always putting our residents, community and each other first.”
