NEW YORK — There’s been a call for plasma donations from people who have recovered from COVID-19. John Feal, activist and founder of the Feal Good Foundation, answered that call.

When Feal spoke to PIX11 earlier this month, he said he was diagnosed with the disease, but powered through and continued helping first responders from home.

He spoke to PIX11 Morning News about his experience, the process of donating plasma and how he has been raising money for supplies and distributing masks to first responders.

In addition to distributing masks, the foundation has been giving out meals as well as selling “Feal Good Socks” where funds go to helping first responders.
