Mr. Jean-Raymond also has a giving spirit. In response to the influx of messages he was receiving from medical professionals on the front lines who have been treating the pandemic and talking about the shortages of basic supplies such as the N95 masks and latex gloves, he converted the Pyer Moss office in New York into a donation center for essential items.
If you would like to donate, items can be sent to :
             Your Friends in New York
              242 W 27th St.7th floor
              New York, NY 10001
 
 Those who need those supplies, can email: wanttohelp@yourfriendsinnyc
