As the country continues to fight the cornoavirus, more and more reports are surfacing of a shortage of personal protective equipment for health workers.
In an effort to protect local health workers, the DeWitt County Farm Bureau is asking local producers to donate any PPE equipment they may have on hand. Allison Reinecke, Manager of the DeWitt County Farm Bureau, says they are specifically looking for N-95 masks.
Farmers typically use the masks while cleaning out grain bins. Reinecke stresses any donated masks will stay local.
The DeWitt County Farm Bureau is currently closed to walk-ins due to the Shelter At Home order. Despite that, Reinecke says they do have a dropbox for the masks at their office on Route 54 in Clinton.
Again, any N-95 masks can be donated at the DeWitt County Farm Bureau office. To conduct business with DCFB, contact them through dewittcountyfarmbureau.com, or call 935-2126.
