TOWN OF TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WKBW) — People across Western New York are finding ways to help the incredible healthcare workers battling COVID-19 on the front lines of this.

This week, members of the Ken-Ton school community joined forces and delivered a donation of gloves, masks and goggles to Kenmore Mercy Hospital. “When we heard our local hospital was in need, I got in touch with our union and employees associations. Within a few days, teachers and staff scoured classrooms at Kenmore West Senior High School, Kenmore East and the Ken-Ton Big Picture Program,” said William C Conrad III, Social Studies Co-Department Chair at Kenmore West High School.

There is an extraordinary need for FDA-approved PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) , in particular N95 and surgical masks. If you would like to help or arrange a donation, please call 716-447-6205 or email healthconnection@chsbuffalo.org.
