#BeTheOne to Protect Our Community's Healthcare Heroes

The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY FRESHLY SQUEEZED CONTENT EVERY MORNING TUESDAY APR 21, 2020

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently ordered an additional 500 million surgical face masks for healthcare workers on the front lines. But what about the workers on the second lines? Workers in assisted living facilities, nursing homes and doctors offices are often caring for high-risk patients like the elderly and immunocompromised, yet many are left without even basic protection. With high-tech equipment and tools–and the help of 200+ dedicated volunteers–the Suncoast Science Center/Faulhaber Fab Lab stepped up to prototype and fabricate face masks and shields to fill the expanding community need. They've distributed 1,000 face masks and shields to date but with 4,000 additional requests (and more incoming daily), they need your help! #BeTheOne to protect the healthcare workers who are fighting for the health and safety of our community by making a gift to the Suncoast Science Center during the 2020 Giving Challenge. Donations made on April 28-29, noon to noon, will be matched 1:1 up to $100, doubling the amount of face protection produced for these heroes!
