Naturally, programs like nursing, medical assisting, phlebotomy and dental hygiene donated supplies but other departments such as ceramics, fire science technology and auto collision repair also donated useful materials, including thousands of gloves, hundreds of N95 masks and surgical gowns, plus thousands of surgical masks.

“As partners with area hospitals in training healthcare providers for our communities, we hope these donations assist these front-line organizations during this unprecedented time,” said Ali O’Brien, CLC vice president for community and workforce partnerships, who has spearheaded the college’s effort.
