District 214 donating PPE to Northwest Community Hospital
High School District 214 is taking yet another step to address the shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for health care professionals by donating to Northwest Community Hospital its supply of PPE and hand soap.
The donated inventory, which was boxed and prepared for delivery the week of April 6, included 340 N95 masks, 800 non-N95 masks, 1,014 hospital masks, 380 gowns, more than 2,000 boxes of gloves and 16 cases of soap, said Cathy Johnson, associate superintendent for finance and operations.
In addition to this donation to health-care workers in our community, District 214 Career and Technical Education teachers are gearing up -- in partnership with Harper College -- for production of PPE face shields, while Buffalo Grove students are working in partnership with JoAnn Fabrics to cut, sew, assemble and distribute face masks.
