March 25, 2020 - Menominee County Community Campaign for Personal Protective Equipment

PRESS RELEASE


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

County Administrator

MARCH 25, 2020

As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, the nation is facing a critical shortage of personal protective equipment, such as gloves, medical masks, respirators, goggles, face shields, gowns, aprons, and hand sanitizer. This shortage of equipment is leaving our emergency responders and healthcare personnel dangerously ill-equipped to care for COVID-19 patients.

Menominee County is organizing a community campaign to collect personal protective equipment to be redistributed to emergency responders and healthcare personnel in our community.

“Our first responders and healthcare personnel are on the frontlines of this battle - they can’t help the rest of us if they get sick. As a community we can help by donating any extra personal protective equipment we may have in our homes or businesses to help keep our first responders and healthcare personnel safe and healthy as they work relentlessly to do the same for us.” – Jason Carviou, Menominee County Administrator  

The items of highest demand include medical/surgical masks, N-95 respirators, gloves, gowns, aprons, and hand sanitizer. If you have any extra of these items in your home or business, please consider donating them to help our community fight the COVID-19 outbreak. 

To coordinate your donation, please contact Jason Carviou, County Administrator at (906) 863-9648 ext. 1001 or send an email to JCarviou@menomineeco.com. We can make arrangements to pick your donation up right from your home!
