And even beyond our corporate partners, we are extremely lucky to have tremendous residents who continue to inspire us, so let's celebrate a few more of them. First up, here is Jake Ezzo. He's the choir director at South Orange Middle School. But on top of that, he's also become a leader of the SOMA 3D Printer Alliance, which is bringing together his students and their families, and even some complete strangers from across the state, in an effort to create face shields for our frontline workers. And so far, Jake and his team have produced the delivered, are you ready for this? 18,630 and counting face shields to hospitals across New Jersey, and even in some cases into New York, and they hope to crack 20,000 before the end of this week. So to you, Jake, and the entire 3D Printer Alliance, congratulations and New Jersey thanks you.
