Health Sciences North said the donation page was created in response to a significant number of community members wanting to support the hospital’s operations during the current COVID-19 outbreak.
“HSN continues to be in touch with businesses, industry and community partners to see if they have additional personal protective equipment (PPE) such as n95 masks, gloves, gowns and goggles that can be donated,” the hospital said in its daily bulletin.
Organizations looking to donate supplies to HSN can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
