NFDA Enlists Volunteers for COVID-19 Funeral Home Relief
The organization has served as a conduit for donations
As of April 22, New York and New Jersey had almost 20,000 deaths related to coronavirus. Those deaths have left hospitals and funeral homes overwhelmed, so the National Funeral Directors Association stepped in to help.
NFDA organized a program to coordinate member, non-member and mortuary science student volunteers who wanted to assist funeral homes in states with a large number of COVID-19-related deaths.
“Just to give you an idea, our funeral directors are the most giving, kind people you want to come into contact with,” said Anna Bernfeld, NFDA senior vice president of member relations. “We have gathered over 800 volunteers for this project.”
