Our team hit a BIG milestone: we’ve donated over 5,000 face shields to frontline workers and healthcare workers in need! Since the conception of the Ontario PPE Collective in early April, our team has been working hard to protect the healthcare workers battling COVID-19. These healthcare workers have been working tirelessly to keep our communities safe, and putting themselves at great risk in the process. As the province re-opens, our team is dedicated to ensuring that our brave healthcare workers are equipped with the personal protective equipment they need.
None of this would be possible without the amazing commitment of our volunteers. Some have been helping with our cause since the very start, while others have been reaching out recently to see how they can be of help during these times. We are very grateful for their hard work, and are also grateful to all of our donors and other supporters in the community.
We wanted to provide you with an update:
- We recently delivered PPE to healthcare workers in Windsor, Chatham, Guelph, and Sarnia.
- Last week, we helped at a large PPE drive in Toronto: providing just over 700 face shields. 600 physicians attended the drive to receive the PPE they needed!
- Requests are still coming in, and our team is working around the clock to print, sanitize, package, and deliver our Face Shields!
You can help in the fight against Covid-19! There are several ways in which you can help us fulfill our pressing requests. You can…
- Register to #Run4theFrontLine to run/walk in support of health care heroes. If you register by THIS Friday morning, you will be entered into a draw to win 1 of 5 certificates for a Virtual STEM Camp (Ages 8 – 14) from STEM Minds!
- Purchase a Canada Day Lawn Sign from Ninja Prints. Celebrate Canada Day with your neighbourhood while helping healthcare workers! All proceeds go to the Ontario PPE Collective and will allow us to continue donating PPE to health care workers.
- Make a donation to our GoFundMe page.
We are working tirelessly to get more donations to frontline workers in need, and greatly appreciate all of the support the community has shown us thus far.
