LA CROSSE, Wis., May 4, 2020 – Western Technical College is developing a plan for returning to campus as COVID-19 restrictions are revised or lifted. This plan includes providing Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) to help ensure the safety of students and staff, particularly for training essential workers in health and public safety careers.
To do this, the college is in need of donations to replenish their PPE supplies. Back in March, Western donated any extra supplies to district medical facilities who were in need. They are hoping community partners can step forward and fill the gap caused by a continuing backlog for ordering these items.
The needed PPE items are gloves, eye protection (goggles or glasses), and cloth or reusable masks and gowns.
If you have PPE to donate, please contact Western’s Emergency Operations Liaison Patti Balacek at 608-785-9201 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
