Loyalist College has donated “a variety of College items from programs and simulation labs.”

“This includes more than 16 bags of hand sanitizer, 500 isolation gowns, 25,200 latex-free non-sterile gloves, 31,000 Nitrile gloves, 20 N95 1860 respirators, 20 N95 1870 respirators, Sensicare sterile gloves, 125 shield face masks, 1,050 surgical face masks (loop), 250 surgical face masks (tie) and one container of Virox wipes, for a total donation of 58,282 supplies,” the College says in a statement.

“It’s so needed,” Director Communications and Organizational Development Catherine Walker. While residents of Ontario are practicing physical distancing, the staff at hospitals are hard at work.

“When we lead with our hearts, remarkable acts of kindness and generosity ensue,” President and CEO of the College Ann Marie says. “I continue to be inspired by the depth of care and compassion within our community and everything you do to support others in this unprecedented time of need.”

An email has been set-up to deal with any donations that come in from businesses. Walker says to message covidwarehousecoordinator@qhc.on.ca if you are interested in making a donation of supplies. She says they are looking for protective equipment like goggles, face shields, masks, gloves and gowns. “Whatever people have would be greatly appreciated,” Walker says.
