PPE Donation Drive in Surrey This Saturday
Where: Canstar Restorations (9377 193rd Street, Surrey)
When: Saturday, April 25, 2020 from 11:00am to 4:00pm
Conquer COVID-19 is a grassroots organization is a collaboration between Canadian physicians, business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities and volunteers who are working together to ensure Canada’s frontline workers are equipped with the necessary protective gear to battle COVID-19.
The campaign is elevated by Olympic hockey gold medalist Hayley Wickenheiser who has a clear affinity for Surrey, where she hosts Canadian Tire WickFest annually. Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds is also heavily involved in the initiative, praising Canadian cities for their support on social media.
“Ensuring we have a high-quality supply of PPE to protect our vulnerable front-line workers is vital as we continue to battle COVID-19,” said Hayley Wickenheiser.
“The nurses, doctors, paramedics, police and fire services in our communities are our lifeline in fighting this virus. We must do everything we can to protect them, so they can continue to save the lives of thousands of Canadians. Even the smallest donation can impact saving lives, and I ask you to step up and support this cause if you can.”
The campaign calls on businesses and individuals to bring sealed and unused: masks, gloves, gowns, face shields and other PPE equipment for a contactless drop off donation.
Supplies from the drive will be going to local hospitals, family physicians, nursing homes, elderly care facilities, women’s shelters and other community health groups. In addition to PPE supplies, the organization is also collecting baby monitors, diapers, wipes, formula, and hygiene products for local women’s shelters.
