In support of its work screening and treating patients during the coronavirus pandemic, the Washington Area New Automobile Dealers Association (WANADA) on Monday gifted MedStar Georgetown University Hospital with a $50,000 donation.

The donation comes as the global crisis continues its spread amid hospitals are stretched to the limits and while doctors, nurses and support staff put themselves at risk to provide care to patients.

“MedStar Georgetown staff members are on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, working tirelessly to help save lives,” said Kevin Reilly, association chairman. “WANADA, and our member auto dealers, are thankful for their service to the Washington metro area in this critical time of need.”

MedStar Georgetown University Hospital President Mike Sachtleben expressed gratitude for WANADA’s gift.

“This gift will further enable us to strengthen our efforts in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic,” Sachtleben said. “This is an unprecedented time in our nation and this hospital’s history, and I want to express our sincere thanks to the members of WANADA and those in our community who have given so generously of themselves to help support our mission during this critical time.”
