STORY: CAA Volunteers to deliver another BIG shipment of PPE to help Frontline workers.June 5, 20201 min read
CAA has once again partnered up with Mobilizing Masks for Health Care workers to deliver a large donation of 120,000 Personal Protective Equipment masks.
Mobilizing Masks is a grassroots organization of physicians and advocates, that is facilitating a large-scale mask donation drive, to bring masks to hospitals most in need of PPE and to units where medical staff have high exposure to COVID-19 positive patients.
While CAA has been helping the organization with the delivery of PPE’s since April 6th, this donation is one of the largest to date.
The masks were donated by T & T Supermarket and delivered by CAA to 105 Gibson, a community centre in Markham. There they were sorted and distributed to long term care residences in the GTA.
Since April 6th CAA South Central Ontario has helped to distribute:
- Surgical Masks - 570,805
- N95 masks - 3,810
- Face Shields - 2,900
Thank you to all the Associates and Network Providers who have contributed to getting this initiative off the ground and who continue to ensure that those on the frontline of our healthcare network are supported.
