Salisbury University collecting medical supply donations for local hospitals
SALISBURY, Md. – Salisbury University is doing what they can to help those on the front lines of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Members of the university community have set up a donation box inside of the Wayne Street Parking Garage to collect medical supply donations, including masks, gloves, and other personal protective equipment.
John Murphy, a professor at the university, tells 47 ABC that the university immediately saw the need for the supplies and wanted to help in any way that they could.
He says that people in our very own community may have these supplies just sitting around their homes.
“If they’re telling us that they’re short on this type of equipment, and you have a pair of googles laying around in your garage, maybe you know you have a pair stuck under a few boxes at home, go get them!” he said.
Murphy tells 47 ABC the box will be in the garage indefinitely. He says by putting the box there, people who want to donate can maintain social distance by driving up, dropping off the supplies, and then leaving. The supplies will eventually be donated to local hospitals.
