D211 Post: District Donates Medical Supplies

image_pdfimage_print

            Township High School District 211 has a tradition of preparing students for whatever careers they may be interested in following graduation.  One way the District accomplishes this is through focus on career clusters, one of which includes the medical field.

            With schools closed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the District had a supply of medical equipment both for classes and school use that was going unused.  After hearing from parents who work in the medical field, staff from across the District gathered supplies and delivered them to Northwest Community Health and St. Alexian Hospitals. 

            All told, the District donated nearly 500 boxes of gloves, more than 50 pairs of safety glasses, as well as masks, gowns and various smaller medical supplies.  This donation is part of the District’s commitment in aiding in the fight of COVID-19 while supporting medical providers in our community.
