Help Empower Simcoe keep the people in our supported living homes safe from Covid-19!
Your donation supports the purchase of personal protective equipment (PPE) for our supported living homes in Simcoe County, Ontario. (For safety's sake, our protected living homes have been closed to outside visitors since the start of the outbreak.)
Many people in our supported homes have pre-existing medical conditions that make them more vulnerable. Should one of the people we support become sick, we will not know until they are tested if they have a cold, flu, or Covid-19. We must assume the worst, and for that, we need to stock up on PPE so we can prevent the virus from spreading.
Your gift today will help make sure we can keep everyone safe.
Empower Simcoe runs a total of 41 group living homes in Barrie and Orillia, so the need is great.
Personal protective equipment includes eye protection, fluid-resistant masks, gowns, and gloves. Some items are discarded after just one use. Our budget is tight at the best of times. It certainly does not include the purchase of extra PPE in the case of a global pandemic.
Please contribute to our efforts to fight Covid-19 and keep the people we support healthy and safe. They are looking to you to help us get things back to normal as soon as possible.
