SUPPLIES OF PPE (Protective Personal Equipment)
We are receiving many questions from the community regarding how people can help with making masks. We are very appreciative of the community support, and we are currently gathering information to make available to the public outlining the steps and materials needed to make masks. We continue to have adequate PPE for staff at this time.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR BLOOD DRIVE SUPPORT!
We are pleased to add 31 units from the Pine Grove location for the Blood Drive. In addition, we assisted in sending several to the Vitalant Center where 110 units were given. Thanks again to the wonderful support from the community!
