Face Shields for Medical Staff
Reverse Garbage was contacted by a doctor who was already aware of our activities. He asked for help to get face shields out to his hospital, urgently. We knew we could help.
We asked Foam Booth and Husky Tape to donate material and we had some suitable elastic. Those businesses instantly said yes, but we can't, in fairness, continue to ask for materials free in this tough time. We then called on our volunteer community to come in, collect the kits and instructions, make the shields and get them back to us in a few days.
We reach our volunteers through our facebook page -we have 85,000 followers on facebook. Many kits came in the following day, all were returned completed within days.
It was a totally feel good activity, all round. It would be awesome to repeat it, a number of hospitals reached out for masks during our campaign.
