Twenty-Three Ohio Community Colleges Donate PPE

We’re proud to be counted as part of this group of donors & proud to educate many of Ohio’s health care personnel & first responders. To all working on the front lines, THANK YOU! We are grateful for your courage and sacrifice.

From the Ohio Association of Community Colleges: “Ohio’s 23 community colleges have donated more than 200,000 medical face masks and pairs of gloves to hospitals and local first responders across the state, according to the Ohio Association of Community Colleges. Twenty-five much-needed medical ventilators are among the colleges’ donations.

‘Our campuses have answered Gov. DeWine’s call to provide PPE equipment and other critically needed medical supplies to those on the front-lines,’ said Jack Hershey, President and CEO of the Ohio Association of Community Colleges. ‘Many of these medical workers and first-responders have been educated on our campuses, so it is doubly gratifying that our colleges are able to support these graduates and their colleagues in this way.’

The donations were featured in approximately 40 news stories across the state.”
