AT&T and iHeartMedia Donating Thousands of Phone Chargers to Hospitals Nationwide

With so many people in the hospital for Coronavirus treatment, some even fighting for their lives, a lot of patients aren't prepared for a lengthy stay, which means that they are lacking essentials - like a cell phone charger.
