"The stress of the pandemic on staff in all areas of the hospital has been unrelenting and we have been doing what we can to continue bringing them the joy of live music," said Musicians On Call President and CEO Pete Griffin. "We are so grateful to Post Malone and Crocs for joining us in providing even more relief when they need it the most through this generous donation.
