Can You Help The Food Banks?

Gloves & Masks PPECan You Help The Food Banks

Are you off work during the shutdown?  Do you use basic PPE gloves & mask when you work?  If so you might be able to help a local food bank.

Some food banks are getting through as many as 50 sets a day; as you will be well aware, they are very hard to get hold of right now thanks to COVID-19!  The food banks need them to protect their volunteers and their customers who are often very vulnerable.
