East End: Farm starts initiative to help skin of health workers
The Long Island Yarn and Farm is helping heal the hands of health care workers.
From lanolin, an oil that comes from sheeps' wool, Tabitha Haubold makes skin care products - something in big demand with all the hand washing and sanitizing.
Haubold says her business has been taking a hit from the health crisis, so she's not in a position to donate her products. But she did cut prices by a third and came up with the Heal the Healers initiative.
So far, they've raised $5,000. That money was used to buy a variety of skin care products that were given to workers at Peconic Bay Medical Center in Riverhead.
