Centralia first responders seeking donations of PPE

CENTRALIA — Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Centralia police and fire departments, along with many local emergency agencies are seeking local donations of N-95 earloop surgical masks, isolation gowns, sterile surgical gloves, face shields and goggles, infection control kits, any size of hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes, and forehead type thermometers.

These items will help protect our first responders as they continue to expose themselves to this pandemic while serving the public.

All items should be in the manufacturer’s original packaging and unopened, as they cannot accept open products or homemade items.

Please call 618-533-7660 or email jlynch@cityofcentralia.org to arrange for a donation.

You can donate to the St Mary’s SSM Hospital by taking it to the front of the hospital or by emailing Damon Harbison at Damon.Harbison@ssm.com.
