MAYS LANDING — The Atlantic County Sheriff’s Office received a large donation of personal protective equipment to protect officers from COVID-19, officials said Monday.

A supply of N95 masks, gloves and protective suits were donated by Ed Ryan, president of Egg Harbor Townshp-based Greenlife Energy Solutions, according to a news release from the Sheriff’s Office.

The supplies were previously unavailable for officers, Scheffler said.

“Collaborating with the private sector is how we are going to get through these uncertain times. His actions were selfless, and a true act of humanity,” he said, asking all corporations that have the means to follow Greenlife’s actions to donate personal protection equipment to first responders to please do so.

Ryan is also donating to four hospitals in South Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York, he said.

“I felt compelled to action as he told me his deputies were on the front lines without any PPE equipment,” Ryan said.
