The “Closer” duo, consisting of AlexanderAlexPall and AndrewDrewTaggart, donated 20,000 KN95 masks — 10,000 each — to NYC’s Weill Cornell Medicine and University Medical Center in Las Vegas.

The masks were transported with the help of the Diocesan Emergency Task Force and the NYPD and LVMPD.

Weill Cornell Medicine and UMC each took to their respective Twitter pages to thank the duo.
