Supplies Donated to Milford Regional Medical Center

Coming Together to Care for Our Community – March 21, 2020

Supplies Donated The Blackstone Valley Vocational Regional School District is well-prepared with cleaning and medical supplies. With school closed, the District wants to ensure that these essential items are available to the medical staff and healthcare providers at Milford Regional Medical Center in Milford, who are on the front line caring for those in the Blackstone Valley.

“Given the current need for certain items, we looked to see what supplies we could donate to Milford Hospital,” said Superintendent-Director Dr. Michael F. Fitzpatrick. “Given our advanced preparation, we were in a position to assist others. Our Director of Facilities and Construction, James Brochu, places orders well in advance to ensure that our school does not run short.”

Members of the school District on Saturday prepared and packed supplies. The items included: 35,400 gloves, 550 wipes, 500 ear loop masks, 350 RSN810 masks, 75 N95 masks, 48 disposable cover-ups, 28 goggles, and 24 face shields. With the school closure, these items are currently not needed at the school and will best serve the greater good of the community at the hospital.

“Coming together to care for our community by donating what we can during challenging times such as these is the kind of example we want to set for our students,” said Assistant Superintendent-Director/Principal, Anthony E. Steele II. “These are extraordinary times, we are in this together, and we will prevail together.”
