Several groups have made donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) to Beaufort Memorial Hopsital over the past couple weeks.
Bob Ellis and Dr. Marikay Campbell from Port Royal Veterinary Hospital arrived at Beaufort Memorial with several boxes of PPE last week. The donation included 1,000 surgical masks, 400 shoe covers, 75 blue poly gowns, 200 bouffant caps and a box of surgical gloves.
“You’re the ones taking care of us,” Dr. Campbell told hospital representatives when dropping of the supplies. “We just want you to know we have your back.”
Also, Battery Creek High School donated its supply of PPE, posting on its Facebook page, “With in-person school not in session, these surgical gowns, masks, CPR shields and gloves are better off in the hands of hard-working medical professionals at Beaufort Memorial Hospital, transported by our friends at Burton Fire District.”
Juliana Leister, Business Relationship Manager with CPM Federal Credit Union, dropped off a donation of more than 100 N95 masks to Beaufort Memorial. Chris Haley, the hospital’s Life Safety Emergency Management Supervisor, and Courtney Smith, Special Projects Director, accepted the donation.
