Central Islip cleaners makes masks for nurses

Family-owned Towne Cleaners and Laundromat in Central Islip is making and donating cloth face masks to hospital staff.

Towne Cleaners owner La Young Trantrum and her sons Leland and Charles have been making the masks and given many of them to nurses at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset and to St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center in Smithtown.

The family is now working with the Town of Islip to identify facilities in need within the hamlets of Central Islip and Brentwood.
