Shawsheen Tech Donates Needed Supplies to Area Medical Facilities



Local medical facilities received some much-needed help from a local vocational school. 


Shawsheen Valley Technical High School recently stepped up and donated medical supplies and personal protective equipment to local medical facilities in support of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic.  


“While the school is currently closed, members of Shawsheen Tech worked to gather the much-needed supplies that the facility had on-hand,” a release from the school states. “The supplies were from a variety of technical areas, including the school’s Life Science programs and Automotive Collision Repair and Refinishing program.”  


In total, the Shawsheen Tech community came together to donate four cases of disposable precaution gowns, 400-N95 respirator masks, 500 face masks, two cases of nitrile rubber gloves, 40 face shields, safety glasses, safety goggles, six gallons of Dial antiseptic soap and 10 canisters of germicidal disinfecting wipes. 


“Many students, parents, and staff were instrumental in making recommendations about the organizations to receive the equipment, including institutions that are partners with the district and participate in our cooperative education program,” the release says. “The supplies were donated to the Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington, Sunny Acres Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Chelmsford, New England Pediatric Care in North Billerica, Winchester Hospital, and the Billerica Police Department.”
