Oxford PPE Donations
Our front-line healthcare workers need your help. They need personal protective equipment (PPE), so they can continue to care for, and protect our community members. Your supplies could help save lives.
As part of a newly developed, County-wide response strategy to tackle the supply shortage, Oxford County’s healthcare partners are working together to collect and distribute donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) among all healthcare partners working in the Oxford County community.
This call for donations is being coordinated by the Oxford County Community Health Centre (OCCHC) and Oxford County’s Paramedic Services on behalf of hospitals, paramedics, long-term care workers, primary care physicians and other healthcare professionals.
Depending on supplies, donations will be distributed daily and weekly based on priority level and/or most urgent need within the community.
Our team has been working together in a cohesive and organized way since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic as part of Southwestern Public Health’s Emergency Control Group to help tackle necessary response measures within our community. We also want to thank the Ingersoll Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic and Builtbymike.ca IT Services for offering administrative support to this initiative.
Thank you in advance for any supplies you may be able to donate. Together, we can protect our healthcare workers. Together, we can save lives.
