Helping our Health Care Providers:
A team of Christian physicians and health care advocates in the Greater Toronto Area have formed Mobilizing Masks for Health Care Providers. They have partnered with Carefirst Seniors and Community Services to create a large-scale mask donation drive to bring masks to our frontline hospital workers across the GTA. They have already distributed 12,000 donated masks and other PPEs to 5 hospitals in the GTA (Scarborough Health Network, Sunnybrook, Lakeridge, Michael Garron, and Toronto General Hospital).
But they are all aware that there is an increasing shortage of local sources for masks so they have started looking for more sources. They have already arranged a purchase of 50,000 N95s and KN95s, but they need to raise $300,000 to cover this cost and to continue purchasing more masks and PPEs for our frontline workers.
Their website is www.frontlinemasks.ca and all monetary donations above $25.00 will be issued a tax receipt from their partners, Carefirst. Thank you.
